Echezeaux 1999, A-F Gros

This wonderful domaine in Pommard needs no introduction to the Burgundy cognoscenti. This Echezeaux 1999 is at the peak of its powers. Glorious multi-toned cherry red and brown colours. The bouquet begins on pencil lead, rye bread, plum and blackberry. Once imbibed blood orange, superb berry fruit, multi-dimensional, sweet, elegant. Rounded, smoothed and lengthened by bottle age. A charming brunette trampling berry fruit dusted with spices. Lively and rich finish.
