  • This review is for the Henri Jayer Echezeaux made from grapes grown on his brother Georges' property. Popped and poured, not decanted. A darkish wine with a sedate, closed nose. With time it opened up to a very good, classic Burgundy nose but to a very great, structured body with deep and austere (for Burgundy) flavors. Floral and mint highlights, it had a high level of bright acidity - in fact some "explosive" acidity - and lots of tannin. A bright, young and structured wine when compared to its opulent but light-bodied companion, a '90 Chambertin Clos de Beze from Armand Rousseau. After one hour the wine opened up and was great, but after two hours the nose had finally opened up fully to reveal a huge, powerful, and impressive wine, with sweet and smokey fragrances and hints of caramel, lots of "extract". Many more years left in this one.

  • Light on its feet, with spice and some leather as well as dark red fruit. Good length and complexity.

  • A massive garden of spices on the nose wow, incredible and damn juicy wine! Not an elegant wine, however, and right now it is VERY young.
