Wine Critic Reviews for 1999 Jean Grivot Echezeaux

Very good ruby-red. Superripe but fresh aromas of roasted red fruits, mocha, brown spices and tobacco. Lush, layered, broad and sweet; really fills the mouth with flavor. A generous, charming, thoroughly ripe Echezeaux that finishes with suave tannins. Seems distinctly more successful than the young 2000.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Echezeaux offers a nose of intense blackberry and fresh herb aromas. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and ample, it is crammed with lush layers of cherries, blackberries, and spices. This sexy, extroverted wine has loads of sweet tannin in its personality. It is seamless, fruit-packed, and exciting. Drink it over the next 12 years.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92-94 RP
(Domaine Jean Grivot Echézeaux Grand Cru Red) All the promise this showed in cask is still here. Deep, almost black color with in your face fruit that is at once very sexy and very Vosne in character. Somehow the wine manages an exquisite sense of elegance and balance despite the very substantial tannins. This is old school Burgundy in style yet offers more refinement, especially in the quality of the tannins. Beautiful juice. (Drink between 2009-2018)

Burghound | 91 BH
Gorgeous. Refined yet powerful, this inky-black, cool red Burgundy marries class, character and finesse. Medium-bodied, it offers excellent midpalate concentration, hinting at a long future. Ripe tannins, balanced finish. Best from 2003 through 2010. 250 cases made.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
