    September 6, 2021 - 2001 Echezeaux was not ready for prime time. Still a fair amount of oak which surprised me. Strong coffee and char notes on the palate that took awhile to tamper down as it had more oak spice than it did fruit for awhile. The sweetness of the fruit started to come out a hour or so after but it never really showed itself. I think a few hours in the decanter would have been really beneficial.

    April 25, 2021 - Beautiful nose, true to character, black and red cherry, more bright red cherry and highly floral stems. The Echezeaux might actually be a little more showy and forward than the GE in the next glass. Started out youthful and fairly strict but developed beautifully. Great acid pairs well with the lush style, although these aren’t overly bombastic. Open now but with youth and power in due proportion. Terrific balance. Really love these. 94 - 95.

    February 27, 2021 - Roses, dark cherry, spice and unobtrusive oak. Preferred this several years ago when there was a little bit more youthful fruit, but it’s still quite lovely in its current spot of fuller maturity.

    November 19, 2019 - Decanted for an hour then drank 2/3s that evening and saved the rest of the following afternoon in the fridge. Wish I would have decanted longer, completely different wine the following day, much more open and expansive on the palate. A beautiful bottle of Echezeaux shared with my wife the first night home with our first born child.

    April 22, 2019 - Finally an on fire bottle of 01 Ech. Seductive nose with spice, red currant, coffee beans, perfume and flower. Palate was smoothe, silky and expressive with layers of coffee beans, cinammon, ginger flower and sweet red currant. An amazing DRC Echezeaux. One could argue it lacked the power of some of the better and younger vintage, but it was alluring and light on its feet. Superb.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Tasted blind. Medium, medium-plus colour. High-toned, less dense than the previous 2003, narrower and more floral, slowly adds weight and dimension. Lovely palate, plenty of fine tannin, fresh candied red fruit. Good density, a slow diminuendo to the reasonably long finish. Very stylish. Someone else guessed the vintage, I got the appellation.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Medium, medium-plus cherry red in colour. The nose is of crushed cherry and raspberries that overlay a faintly spicy, subtle coffee-bean base. The tannin seems to show a little more grip than the last tasting, but frankly (despite chewing on bread for the last ten minutes) I keep getting 'Montrachet-flashbacks' as I taste. The spicy palate is silken with excellent acidity and a tinge of oak on the finish that's reminiscent of the Montrachet - unless that's still the Montrachet! Clearly a pure and distinguished wine, but doesn't show that joie de vivre that was so evident in January.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Medium, medium-plus cherry red. Bright and intense nose of red and black cherry - shaded to red - with raspberry and subtle spice. The palate is sweet with very smooth tannin, nice concentration and just a little vanilla on the finish - a finish of 20-30 seconds. Smooth, understated and very drinkable - I'm surprised how easily this drinks. With time the impressive nose develops a little more spice. To put this wine firmly into context, after the La Tâche and Romanée-Conti, the nose is slightly less concentrated and certainly more diffuse. Still, there's super length if less depth on the palate - in a word the wine is just 'simpler' than the top two, but nonetheless a very fine Échézeaux.
