(AM=93) This is also exuberantly fresh with slightly riper aromas of spiced plum, black cherry and a lovely floral component that merges into silky, even velvety flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration. This is both bigger and richer if perhaps not quite as tension-filled on the long, brooding, somber and moderately austere finish. Like the 2011 version this is relatively fine compared to the typical Echézeaux thanks to its terroir but that shouldn't affect its ability to age and improve effortlessly for the next 12 to 15 years as the balance is impeccable. (AG=93) Good bright, dark red. Highly complex nose combines blackberry, violet, coffee, mocha, cola and spicy oak, all lifted by an exotic floral element. The palate offers superb intensity and tension, not to mention great inner-mouth perfume, but this youthfully closed wine will need at least eight or ten years to absorb its oak. Finishes spicy, savory and very long, with excellent breadth and fine-grained tannins. Distinctly more backward and austere than the 2011 today.
