2018 Domaine Dujac Echézeaux Grand Cru

SKU #1502931 95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Echézeaux from Domaine Dujac is a brilliant wine in the making, and this is one of the best young examples of this cru that I can recall tasting at the estate. The celestial bouquet soars from the glass in a sappy blend of raspberries, cherries, red plums, duck, a very complex base of soil tones, Vosne spices, cocoa powder and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tangy, with all of the complexity that the nose promises, a great core, suave, fine-grained tannins and outstanding backend mineral drive on the focused and utterly complete finish. Great, great Echézeaux! Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru had been racked the day prior to my visit. That said, the bouquet is very well defined, offering black cherries, raspberry, rosemary and pressed rose petal aromas that blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, good depth and precision, revealing bitter cherry and a touch of balsamic toward the finish. Very good potential. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Echezeaux Grand Cru is a promising cuvée in the making, mingling aromas of dark berry fruit, cassis and cherries with notions of burning embers, dried flowers and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and ripely tannic, with a layered and nicely concentrated core, lively acids, and a well-defined finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

94-97 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Deepish crimson colour, the nose is concentrated but sombre. The stems keep it lively. Extra intense as you move to the back of the palate, liquid raspberry with a spicy complexity. Very good length here and I can sense future rose petals. Tasted: November 2019."
