2015 Echezeaux, Grand Cru, Lucien le Moine (6 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Nuits

Saturated dark red. Deep, musky aromas of dark raspberry, mocha, licorice and minerals, with a chocolatey hint of the vintage s ripeness. Utterly silky and aristocratic, conveying an almost peppery coolness and superb energy to its flavors of dark berries, soil and saline minerality; extended aeration brought notes of redcurrant and tobacco. This classically dry wine was very tightly wound when I initially tasted it from barrel but today it offers a fabulous combination of fine-grained texture, definition and mineral energy, and a very long, rising finish featuring noble tannins. It may ultimately merit an even higher rating.
