    Description

    Grands Echezeaux 2006
    Vieilles Vignes, D. Laurent
    Bottle (12)


    "Cherry and black raspberry with their spirituous Doppelganger; forest floor you could measure in acres; a field of violets; and enough roasted game to do a Medieval banquet proud combine for an aromatic display of remarkable depth and intensity. On a palate of incredible textural richness, liqueur-like black fruits; palpably dense chalkiness; demiglace of myriad meats; and mysterious notes of decadent wood and forest creatures pick up further complexity (as if this weren't over-kill!) from toasted pralines, brown spices, and dark chocolate. This finishes like a tidal wave moving across the palate with sinister reverberation, yet for all of its viscosity, density, and power, if leaves behind a feeling and flavors as uplifting as they are ultimately ineffable. I would be thrilled to follow wherever it led, for the next 20 years." (97 pts. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate #186, Dec. 2009)
