The wine at the domaine is made by Pascal Lachaux, the son in law of Robert Arnoux, and in the last few years the domaine has been rebranded as Arnoux-Lacahaux. This wine was tasted blind with the Bufties, tasters of great repute. Announced by a plummy colour, showing some age and with a dilute rim. On the nose there is plum, spice, pencil shavings. Its animal, there's a drop of cherry, some lychen, stalky and a tad smoky. Good texture, there is a sense of quality terroir, lively, unripe tannins, decent, no real length, as one taster said "this is a post-fruit wine". You have to like that, "post fruit". Scores 18/30 for an Echezeaux. Curse of the 2004 vintage!
