The 2011 Echezeaux Grand Cru is more closed on the nose than the Aux Brulees and demands more coaxing from the glass. But just give it a couple of minutes and it unfolds to reveal black currant fruit mingling with raspberry and Morello, a sub-layer of minerals and forest-floor scents. The palate is medium-bodied with firm backbone, quite masculine in the mouth with a pleasant austerity on the finish. This is a seriously fine Echezeaux. Drink 2017-2030.
