"(not Jadot's vinification; done with a portion of whole clusters): Bright, full red. Dark berry aromas are dominated in the early going by a strong note of licorice pastille. Black fruit flavors show a juicy quality but are very tightly wound and medicinal, even a bit muscular for a young Grands-Echézeaux. I find the tannins a bit tough and dry. Rough going today, and not showing the normal elegance of this grand cru." (VM)

"Firm reduction flattens the nose though there is a lovely sense of both freshness and tension to the colossally constituted flavors that drench the palate with sap that once again renders the notably firm tannic spine all but invisible for the moment on the impressively persistent if slightly warm finish. I suspect that in time the structure will become more apparent but this is one concentrated, indeed massive GE, that isn't elegant but does avoid rusticity." (BH)
