"The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from 1.32 hectares of vine in the lieu-dit of Les Champs Traversins. Matured in 30% new oak, it has a fragrant bouquet of red berry fruit laced with bergamot tea and light forest floor scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that impart more corpulence than Lamarche’s Premier Crus, exerting a gentle grip toward the finish. Very harmonious in style, this should drink well for the next 15 years, possibly more."

"A riper nose reflects notes of poached plum, red currant, violet and a plethora of spice suggestions. The supple and relatively forward mid-palate of the moderately dense flavors immediately tighten up on the impressively complex and persistent finish that is shaped by a notably firm tannic spine that will require extended patience to resolve. I like the vibrancy and this is really quite good."
"Vinification: Hand picked, 80 to 100% de-stemmed depending on the vintage. Vatting period of about 15 to 18 days, in open oak vats at a low temperature (controlled by thermo-regulation). Maturation: In oak casks for between 16 and 20 months (between 60 and 100% new oak depending on the vintage). Bottled with no fining and no filtering. Ageing in the bottle: Depending on your personal tastes and the vintage, between 6 and 30 years." -Winery
