(from a warm southern exposure in the lieu-dit Combe d'Orveaux; aging in two-thirds new oak):   Medium red.  Aromas of red cherry, cinnamon and earth.  Silky, suave and sweet, with a slightly candied quality to the cherry, spice and mint flavors.  Savory, stylish Echezeaux with a long, saline, soil-driven finish.  This very ripe wine will nonetheless require four or five years of cellaring to absorb some of its tannins. Steve Tanzer 91-94

(from the climat En Orveaux). This is also exuberantly fresh if quite restrained with a lovely spice character
to the primarily red currant suffused nose. I very much like the complexity of the seductively textured medium weight flavors
that brim with dry extract on the racy, intense and balanced finish. This refined effort will also need at least a decade before it
will be able to realize its considerable potential.  Burghound (91-93)/2024+
