John Gilman, 96 Points 

"The nose soars from the glass in a complex and exuberant blend of black plums, sweet dark berries, such, black tea, a gorgeously complex base of soil tones, expresso, woodsmoke, spice oak and a touch of balsam bough in the upper-register.  On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with great backend mineral drive, ripe, seamless tannins, bright acids and laser-like focus on the very long, complex and seamless finish."  

Decanter, 95 Points 

"This bottling is consistently among my favorite Echézeaux. It is blended from grapes grown in Les Quartier de Nuits and Rouges du Bas that are destemmed and given a cold soak before a gentle fermentation and 18 months ageing in cask. The result has an incredibly expressive raspberry and cassis fruit with a pronounced floral note, and hints of spice, smoke and leather. The texture is lovely and dense, and the wine lingers enticingly on the finish. Superb. This wine is both approachable early and eminently ageworthy." 

Vinous, 93-95 Points 

"The 2020 Echezeaux Grand Cru is the only cuvee with whole bunch, around 25% this year.  It comes from two parcels that are always picked on the same day and matured in 60% new oak with a very light toasting.  Brambly red fruit, wild hedgerow and briary on the nose that (again) blossoms with aeration whilst maintaining outstanding focus.  The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, taut and fresh with a bit of sinew on the finish, a bit of grip.  So give this 5-8 years in the bottle." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
