DescriptionGrands Echezeaux 1993
“You never know when things are going to show up after a very long absence as I hadn't had this beauty since 1998. Not surprisingly it has changed radically since then as the color has lightened somewhat as there is now a hint of bricking though the center remains a relatively deep ruby. Moreover the once primary fruit has become entirely secondary in character along with ample amount of spice, earth, leather, Asian-style tea and soft floral hints. There is still excellent vibrancy and density to the muscular big-bodied flavors that possess terrific complexity and detail, all wrapped in a hugely long and well-balanced finale. This is impeccably well-balanced and harmonious and should live for years.” (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2016)
Estimate: $750 - $950.
