Very dark, deep and full purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The bouquet is deep and densely concentrated with firm aromas of black fruits, iron-earth and subtle violet aromatics in the background. Some oak and nuances of reduction add interest. Full-bodied, this has a solid core of ripe black berry fruits, along with notes of iron and earth, and some meaty elements.
Robust tannins add to the texture and heart of the wine, with the fruit flavours opening out through the mid-palate enhanced by light acid freshness. The reductive elements are noticeable and add to the firm, minerally, grainy finish. This is a fully-packed, black fruited Echezeaux with firm tannins and some mineral and reductive notes.
