The Echezeaux is elegant and sumptuous. Aromas of violets and spices are evident and in its youth the wine is fragrant and silky but upon maturation becomes deep and full. A round wine which is rarely very tannic.

"There is an herbal hint on the black fruit liqueur, spice and earthy aromas. This is a relatively big yet refined effort that possesses an admirable amount of mid-palate density as there is plenty palate staining dry extract on the linear and muscular finish that imparts a textured, even opulent mouth feel. This should drink well both young and old."

"Bright, dark red. Cherry pit and redcurrant on the nose. Fine-grained, supple and open-knit, showing good energy but not the sappiness or precision--or fat--of the Clos Vougeot. In a distinctly saline, soil-driven style, less vibrant and primary than the Clos Vougeot. Not singing today, but the finish is ripely tannic and long."
