Échezeaux 2007 is a rich and dense wine, loyal to its appellation through the finesse of its attack on the palate and its overall balance. It is also a wine with pronounced acidity, which gives it freshness and structure and bestows upon it a sometimes austere finish.
The reward for 5 years of more of cellaring is an amazing opulent and complex wine.

"A mélange of spicy red, blue and black berry fruit, plum and violet aromas framed in noticeable wood are in keeping with the rich, full and naturally sweet flavors that possess good extract and a velvety and seductive mouth feel, all wrapped in a balanced, powerful and long finish where the wood tannins are in evidence. Because of the solid mid-palate density, the wood should eventually be successfully absorbed and overall, this is a lovely '07."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 90
"A smoky and resinous overlay to the red fruit preserve aromas and flavors of Meo-Camuzet’s 2007 Echezeaux morphs into a suggestion almost of sheer sawdust against the sweet backdrop of jam-like and candied red fruits that encamp on the palate. Hints of maple syrup in the strikingly persistent finish leave an almost sticky impression of caramel and resin, to which a hint of fresh juiciness and of bitter, smoky black tea contribute some measure of counterpoint. This is going to be an acquired taste – but assuming that it is one you have acquired, I would anticipate enjoying the wine within the next 6-8 years."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90-92
"Good deep, bright red. Very ripe, sexy aromas of berries, minerals and sweet oak. Sweet and fat with sappy maraschino flavor. This strikes me as the ripest Meo 2007 to this point, with plenty of stuffing to support its tannins. Bottle aging should bring more complexity."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Firm and powerful, offering cherry, black currant and mineral flavors wound tightly around a core of vibrant acidity and refined tannins, with a terrific finish. This is beautifully balanced and should develop nicely."
