93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

A very fresh, cool and admirably pure nose features notes of dark pinot fruit, anise, clove, sandalwood and warm earth. There is outstanding complexity to the extract-rich, textured, intense and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a firm, highly persistent and energetic finish. This riveting effort is both classy and very stylish. (AM)  (4/2013)

Good medium red. Red berry liqueur, cherries macerated in alcohol and a whiff of pepper on the nose. Denser and thicker than the Echezeaux but a bit youthfully disjointed, with the peppery character following through in the middle palate. Finishes dry and quite tight, with powerful peppery tannins and hints of clove oil and noble herbs. Plenty of extract here but this will require time in bottle to harmonize. Saouma told me he never likes this cuvee in the early going. (ST)  (1/2013)

The 2011 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru has a refined, almost understated, sophisticated bouquet with great clarity and precision, though yet to reveal its true personality. The palate is very well-balanced with crisp tannins. Indeed, it is quite robust and for me, just missing the refinement demonstrated by the Echezeaux. (NM)  (8/2013)
