The 2016 Echezeaux Grand Cru has a clean and pure bouquet, a little stoniness at first then blackberry, hints of cassis and blueberry, quite perfumed and floral. Maybe this is more linear than its peers? The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasing succulence on the entry, a keen thread of acidity that binds together a satisfyingly edgy finish. As usual, Anne’s Echézeaux is full of tension but it will deserve several years in bottle.
Slightly more obvious wood treatment frames the notably spicier and floral-infused aromas of both red and dark currant along with a hint of tea. The velvety, concentrated and sappy flavors are more refined as well as more powerful while the impressively persistent finish is shaped by ripe tannins. This is quite firm but not rustic and I particularly like the balance here.
