2011 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Echezeaux Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France

This wine best expresses both the ethereal and the structured character of the 2011 vintage. With hints of sweetness, this is a wine of charm and luminosity.  Of all them raw from Domain, it is the more early, the less complex. He flourishes before them others with a lovely clarity of expression : a seductive tenderness dressed a skeleton of steel who him allow to evolve with elegance. This is the brother cadet from Great Echezeaux, glorious elder whose he burns to equal the fortune. He don't care approach sometimes, speaking a speech muscle and conqueror.

Picked on 10 and 11 September at 22.04hl/ha, the Echezeaux Grand Cru has a delicate, quite feminine bouquet with scents of fresh strawberry, undergrowth and just a hint of dry tobacco. It opens nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly brusque entry. The tannins are quite pointed here, creating a more angular Echezeaux compared to the 2011, whilst it needs to develop just a little more flesh and weight towards the back end that feels a little brittle and attenuated at the moment. Still, there is a fine saline, almost nori seaweed tang on the aftertaste – a nice twist in the tail. 1,030 cases produced. Issue date: February 26, 2014. Drinking window: 2014-2027

Vinous

The 2011 Échézeaux literally jumps from the glass with a heady melange of dark red fruit, sweet floral notes and crushed rocks. Rich and explosive on the palate, yet backed up with significant structure and pure intensity, the 2011 is firing on all cylinders. First and foremost, the Échézeaux is a wine of pure texture. The Échézeaux emerges from 7-8 parcels in the Poulallières climat. There is so much to like here. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni. Tasting date: March 2014. Drinking window: 2018-2036.
