The most brooding of all with a wildness sauvage to the nose. Black pitted olives with amaro cherry. Slight reduction mutes the perfume. As it blows off in the glass it reveals a crystalline black cherry lift. This crystalline black cherry character carries through onto the palate. It is brooding but not heavy. It is very, very long. Strong, firm mineralilty and structure. Jono Hersey, FWC The 2019 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru is matured in 25% whole bunch. It has an enticing bouquet of mulberry and pressed iris flower, well defined and focused, plus a touch of sea spray in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins and very saline in the mouth, delivering just the right amount of bitter cherry mixed with iodine on the finish. A superb Grands-Echézeaux, but not Thomas Collardot’s best wine in show this year, which is the Clos Saint-Denis. 93-95 points. Neal Martin, Vinous.com 1.5 new barrels out of 2.5 produced. Fine mid purple. The nose needs a little teasing out but delivers an extraordinary weight of fruit, less floral in style. I can detect some heat on the palate though, with just the lightest touch of over-ripeness. A solid, powerful finish with some chocolate notes, leavened by some whole bunch freshness which helps to draw out the finish. 94-97 Points. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy This is even more aromatically restrained, indeed to the point that the subtly spiced and floral-suffused nose of black pinot fruit is all but mute. The rounded and attractively textured middle weight flavors are not especially dense but there is focused power and a taut muscularity to the balanced and hugely long finish. Once again, the tannins are quite fine but dense and this too should amply repay extended cellaring yet it's not so backward that it couldn't be approached after only 7 to 8 years or so. 92-95 Points.
