  • Unfortunatly this wine was corked.

  • Wine snobs that I know have described my palate as meat and potatoes because of my preference for big, bold wines from Bordeaux and for my lack of appreciation for Pinot noir. I would describe my palate as mature and I would describe burgundy as inconsistent. Nonetheless, this was simply perfect. This opened quickly and drank wonderfully. Full of ripe fruit with a long finish. If only all burgundy drank like this....

  • Most exotic nose of the 4 vintages of DRC Ech present -- coconut and gingerbread along with Vosne spice and dark fruit. '99 is such a great vintage and this wine reflects it, being a cut above the other Echezeaux. Yet it still didn't have the depth and length I'd expect from such an esteemed producer in such a great vintage. Perhaps it will gain those things with many more years in bottle?

  • Dégustation Bourguignonne du 23 octobre 2013: La couleur la plus jeune du groupe révèle déjà le vin.
    Un joli nez de fruit rouge frais discret, joli, complexe. La bouche a une texture aérienne, très élégante, un coté végétal noble, petite note de carton en finale, je pensais a une bouteille imparfaite d'un grand vin, mais j'avais tort. Sa grandeur s'est maintenue avec l'aération. L'élégance princière d'un DRC. Il survole la dégustation.

  • Opens with a floral lift. It's still quite dark in colour. With time in the glass, you get black fruits, spice and an exotic aroma too. In the mouth, the feel is fantastic. It's fine and elegant, poised and intense, all at the same time. There are dark fruits, mineral edges, earthy tones, spices. But it's the balance that is most appealing. The acids are there, but so beautifully offset against the tannins and fruits. It makes it a very food friendly proposition too. No rush to drink it.
