2016 Echezeaux Grand Cru, Les Loachausses, Domaine Anne Gros (6 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Nuits

The 2016 Echézeaux Les Loachausses Grand Cru has a very detailed and focused bouquet. My instinct tells me that this is already beginning to close down compared to its showing from barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity, silky smooth in texture with a caressing white pepper tinged, black cherry and bilberry finish. There is still a little oak to be subsumed, but given the frost that affected this vineyard, this is a great success for Anne Gros. Tasted at the Domaine Direct Tasting in London.

Vinous

(there was a lot of frost here, but these younger vines snapped back more successfully than those in Clos-Vougeot, noted Anne Gros): Bright medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, crystallized strawberry, spices and menthol. Plush and sweet in the mouth, with ripe red berry and spice flavors dominating. A bit more structured on the back end, finishing with substantial ripe tannins and a classic dryness.
