The 2019 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from Bichot’s 0.25 hectares of vines in two parcels close to Drouhin and DRC. It usually yields a maximum of four barrels. This has a perfumed bouquet of expressive red currant, wild strawberry and blood orange aromas that display a little more intensity than the Echézeaux. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins. Sophisticated and precise, this is an elegant Grands-Echézeaux with impressive tension and harmony toward the finish, which fans out beautifully. A wonderful wine. Vinous Media | 94-96 VM(Domaine du Clos Frantin (Nuits St. Georges) - Domaines Albert Bichot Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru Red) This is restrained to the point of being almost mute and the nose requires aggressive swirling to gradually reveal attractively layered aromas of mostly red currant along with an impressive array of floral, spice and tea nuances. There is excellent volume and power to the big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess a beguiling inner mouth perfume before culminating in a very backward, serious and built-to-age finale. This bad boy of a GE is packed with potential but be prepared to buy it and forget it deep in the back of your cellar. (Drink starting 2039).Burghound | 92-95 BH
For the first time, Maxime Chuerlin decided to use stems in his crown jewel, the 2019 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru, settling on 25% whole bunch for this year. This was an astute decision, because it lends freshness and more complexity to the bouquet of blackberry, undergrowth, tobacco and crushed limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, hints of peppermint behind the black fruit and touches of white pepper and sage toward a finish that fans out wonderfully. A slam-dunk for Maxime Churlin. Five barrels produced, matured entirely in new oak.Vinous Media | 96-98 VM(Domaine Georges Noëllat Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru Red) In contrast to the expressiveness of the Echézeaux, this is aromatically more restrained and somber and only grudgingly reveals its more floral-suffused aromas of various dark berries, spice and lavender and violet scents. The sleek and impressively intense bigger-bodied flavors are also not especially dense with very good detail, all wrapped in a dusty, somewhat angular and short finish. Note that my score assumes that this become much more harmonious with a few years in bottle as the underlying material appears to be quite good. (Drink starting 2034)Burghound | 91-93 BH
The 2020 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru has a nicely-detailed bouquet: mulberry, crushed stone, rose petal and light bergamot aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, taut and fresh with a slightly chalky-textured but quite persistent finish. I admire the tension here and the length - a noble G.E.Vinous Media | 94-96 VM
