It is not often that we are able to offer a selection of aged DRC Reds, particularly from such fine years as 1964, 1971 and 1976.
We are delighted to present Grands Echezeaux from 1964, 1971 and 1976 - all serious years for the domaine and Burgundy reds in general. Grands Echezeaux is, with some time in the bottle, the wine that most closely resembles La Tache. It picks up an exotic, spicy element with layer after layer of flavour.
The bottles are all in excellent condition and with prices for DRC going through the roof due to the booming demand these wines are well priced.
If you have yearned to try an aged DRC this is your opportunity!
DRC Grands Echezeaux 1964
$2950.00 each (2 available)
Burghound: Rich, opulent and wonderfully complex spice and rich, earthy, somewhat animale aromas followed by very long, intense, robust yet classy and sleek, velvety flavors. Classy, gorgeously complex and impressive as hell with a touch of finishing muscle and fantastic length. A flat out great example of the vineyard and one this is drinking perfectly now though well stored bottles will continue to hold without any problem. 94 Points
DRC Grands Echezeaux 1971
$2650.00 each (3 available)
John Kapon: A 1971 DRC Grands Echezeaux was next. I think I can, I think I can...I have said it over and over again, but it is tough for anyone to convince me that DRC can be any better than it was in 1971...ok maybe '34. 1945, true...but after that, I am not sure I can be convinced! This was another great bottle. Grands Ech is usually the best bang for the buck in the DRC portfolio, sometimes even outshowing its 'bigger' siblings when tasted side-by-side. Gamy and rich, beefy yet citrusy, lean yet lush, the 1971 also had the expected earth, menthol, rose and rust. 95 Points
DRC Grands Echezeaux 1976
$1395.00 each (3 available)
Burghound: An overtly spicy nose is dominated by sous bois which is also evident on the lighter weight flavors that possess lovely minerality and detail on the dleicious finish that delivers solid if not truly special depth and length. There is only a touch of the typically robust '76 style tannins and absolutely no rusticity. To my taste this is fully resolved and should be drunk up sooner than later though there is no rush; that said, this is in a state of graceful decline and thus it should be enjoyed now. 90 Points
