John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The 2016 Grands Echézeaux from the Mongeard family was a bit behind its siblings in terms of development, with the new oak component here not yet as well integrated into the body of the wine as some of these other grand crus, but its overall potential was self-evident. The bouquet will be outstanding in the fullness of time, as today it offers up scents of dark berries, black plums, duck, a complex base of soil, dark chocolate and smoky new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full and rock solid at the core, with impressive complexity, fine-grained tannins, bright acids and outstanding length and grip on the pure and elegant finish. All this excellent wine needs is bottle age, but it will be a tough wine to find in the market, with seventy percent of the crop having been lost to frost damage. (Drink between 2030-2080).
