Tasting Notes

Jadot's 2015 Echézeaux Grand Cru is showing brilliantly from bottle, offering up a youthfully reserved but beautifully pure nose of raspberry, black cherry, rose petal, violet, subtle incense and a nicely integrated framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is ample, full-bodied and succulent, with bright acids and a superb sense of control despite its scale, its tannins fine-grained but formidable. To reiterate, this is firmly shut down at present, and while its potential is considerable it is likely to remain that way for a good decade. William Kelley - Wine Advocate
