Went to an amazing tasting of all the current release DRC's at Beltramo's in Menlo Park Ca.....my first true experience with these wines. All I can say is WOW! As soon as I smelled the first glass of the Echezaux, I knew these were going to be something special. The nose was so exotic and captivating...they all had that exotic, VERY dusty spiced nose...almost like the glasses were full of dust in them before they poured. It was like walking into a mahogany wood works shop full of sawdust, and the smell of the burning hot saw as it cuts through the wood...or something of-the-like. What pure and fresh, complex and exotically beautiful wines! I can only hope to one day taste them again.
