VM96: The 2009 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is lush, radiant and super-expressive. Rose petal, blood orange, anise and cinnamon lend striking atomatic presence. Ample and generous with plenty of supporting structure, the 2009 Grands Echézeaux is stellar today, and so rewarding to drink now.
WA95: The 2009 Grands-Echezeaux jumps from the glass with vivid aromatics and equally voluptuous fruit. Despite its richness, the Grands-Echezeaux seems to hover on the palate. Layers of fruit continue to build to the long super-refined finish. Over the last few years the Grands-Echezeaux seems like the most improved wine at DRC. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.
