Additional Information

“(racked the day before my visit) Good full red. Sappy aromas of crushed cherry and fresh licorice. Sweet and primary, with compelling energy and verve to the penetrating fruit flavors. Boasts a wonderfully fine-grained texture and very suave tannins. How many estates would show their Echezeaux after their Musigny? But this is indeed the best 2007 in the cellar.” 92-94 points -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar.-Apr. 2009

    Grenadine and cooked red raspberry, coconut,vanilla, caramel and cooked ginger in the nose ofthe Prieur 2007 Echezeaux signal both ripe fruit andlavish oak. The palate impression, though, issurprisingly and by no means unpleasantly tart,which lends a welcome sense of invigoration to whatmight otherwise be rather thick and ponderousrichness. Hold it for at least 6-8 years and hope itgains interest and charm along the way.

    A very spicy nose offers up notes of anise, clove and cinnamon set off by hints of oak and blue and black pinot fruit that precedes the rich, full and naturally sweet flavors blessed with plenty of dry extract and an explosive and palate drenching finish that displays perfect balance. An impressive Ech that should age for years.
