Domaine Jean Grivot Echezeaux 2014
Echezeaux is a grand cru simply too large to be considered a single terroir. Here you have to be mindful in picking your producer, also taking into account the exact climat location, which is typically not indicated on the label.
This Jean Grivot comes from the Cruots climat, where Henri Jayer also had plantings. This was simply stunning, one of the youngest tasting 1990s I've come across. Macerated cherries and flowers, Vosne spice and subtle oak. Many 1990s border on overripeness but this is just right.
Magnum, intense rich black cherries, black Forrest fruits, this is very ripe, rich and dense for an Echezeaux with plenty of energy, freshness and ripeness. A great effort!
Incredible nose of cola at the opening. The dark matter of Echezeaux was all there in my glass. With time the beauty came. Strong effluvium of violets, jasmine, and water lily. It was like entering a florist shop. Great vintage by the way!
