The wine shows aromas and flavors of red berries, herbs, and purple flowers. The palate is rich with ripe fruit and medium weight with bright acidity and fine tannins. Aging in 40-70% new Burgundian pièce brings notes of vanilla, toast, and baking spices. Red Burgundy might be the world's most flexible food wine. The wine's high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a dense, quite opaque bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass, reluctantly revealing sultry blackberry and wild strawberry scents laced with rose petal and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate offers fine-grained tannins that frame the mineral-rich black fruit laced with orange peel and ferrous notes toward the persistent finish. Very good potential here. A serious Echézeaux.
