    February 15, 2019 - Much more meaty than I recall. Perhaps this was advanced

    June 26, 2017 - Winos' excellent adventure in France; 6/22/2017-6/27/2017 (All over France): Perhaps due to the vintage and vineyard, the nose is decidedly red. Beautiful mature nose, which is a bit surprising, displaying bright red fruits, raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb tart, spicy spices, noticeable sous bois, grilled shiitake, a hint of oak a la sesame and tree bark. Nicely integrated harmonious palate, beautifully layered succulent red fruits, bright acidity, strong presence of mineral and a long decadent red fruit driven finish. This has already reached its youthful peak and drinking beautifully.

    January 14, 2017 - very nice and open.
    The wood is now integrated in the wine which offers plenty of fruit and backbone.
    red berries and fleshy and dairy notes.
    drink now or soon.

    November 4, 2016 - Great Young Echezeaux Dinner (goosefoot - Chicago IL): Open an hour+ before serving, this came across as tired and slightly oxidized. Nothing like another bottle from the same case opened late 2015.

    September 13, 2016 - A little bit cooked, in terms of slightly stewed quality, higher acidity and lack of purity. That being said, I actually enjoyed the brutishness and slight bitterness here, which stood apart from the other Liger-Belair wines.
