joseph drouhin, grands echezeaux grand cru 2018
The 2018 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru which comes from the namesake lieu-dit is one of Véronique Drouhin’s favorite crus and in her opinion one of their most consistent. It has a very well-defined bouquet of blackberry raspberry pressed iris flowers and incense that immediately seduces the senses. The palate is medium-bodied with fine supple tannins and a perfect line of acidity the 40% whole cluster lending a little pepperiness toward the pixelated finish. This is unequivocally a Grand Vin.
