Tasting Notes

Tasted blind, the 2015 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru showed extraordinarily well, far surpassing my expectations and proving that interesting things are finally afoot at this domaine. Unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of ripe wild berries, rose petals, incense, candied peel and espresso roast, the wine is full-bodied, ample and lavish, with satiny tannins, a fleshy but succulent core of fruit, juicy balancing acids and the ineffable sense of completeness that distinguishes the vintage's best wines. While this address's debut efforts were somewhat uninspiring, this superb Grands Echézeaux is the real thing. Has Domaine d'Eugenie finally arrived? William Kelley - Wine Advocate
