"The 2014 Echézeaux en Orveaux Grand Cru, matured in around 70% new oak, was backward and sulky on the nose when I tasted it from barrel; it unfurled gradually with small dark cherries and blueberry scents, though all with a tight leash. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannin, the new wood component dominant at the moment. It is pure in the mouth with a keen line of acidity, although personally that wood just obstructs the terroir expression on the finish, therefore I would afford this 3-5 years in bottle." 90-92 Neal Martin
Red: its colour is ruby, shading towards the darker tones of magenta and purple. Its bouquet is redolent of animal, spice notes, underbrush, and prune, evolving with age towards musk, leather, fur and mushroom. When young, its aromas suggest rose, violet and fresh cherry. On the palate, there is a heightened attack and an agreeable balance between supple tannins and fully-rounded flavour. The dense texture and tight grain of these wines fully open after 4-5 years in the cellar.
