The 2020 Echezeaux Grand Cru offers real intensity on the nose, quite powerful with pure dark cherries, cassis, crushed violet and blood orange. Stylistically, this is not unlike Thomas Collardot s good friend, Sebastien Cathiard s in style. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, veins of blood orange and a pinch of sea salt. Lovely structure and focus on the finish. Excellent – this is an Echezeaux from the top drawer.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2050
