I forgot how good old 1980’s la chapelle’s are. The lovely dry prune and raisin flavours with tertiary truffles and earth. Delicious. This is just starting to dry out and is not as long as I would like.

    6/21/21, 4:49 PM - I did decant this bottle but only for less than an hour prior to drinking, I ve learnt that with HLC one should always do so. And you are absolutely right it definitely improved over time with more air. I have one more bottle and when I drink it I plan to decant it for at least 2-3 hours prior to drinking

Crisp fresh and filled with white fruits apples and pears. Great acidity and structure and while good needs a lot more cellar time to get better. 92-94 pt

Drank this next to a 2012 CDLR and loved it! Way more feminine and elegant compared.

DRC echezeaux dinner 5th Aug 2020

1990 - PNP, barnyard nose, clearly has a solid structure and sufficient tannins which through dinner started to soften and integrate nicely. Drinking nicely now but need to start drinking bottles in the cellar. 94
1991 - didn’t like this from the start to the end. I think this was an off bottle. NR
1997 - surprisingly similar to the 1990. Quite approachable and could go on for many more years. 93+
2004 - this was the wine that redefined burgundies for me and it continues to be the echezeaux that leads the pack. That ethereal nose, the perfect acidity and length on the palate. Even better then the bottle I had last year. Drink now, not sure how this will evolve with time but certainly hope I ll have the opportunity to find out. 96
2009 - just too young for me at this stage, a medicinal nose which continued through the evening. The wine started to gain some weight in the glass and the power and structure showed clearly. But needs a lot more time and has the potential. 93+ at this stage
