A notably ripe and exceptionally spicy nose combines liqueur of black cherry, cassis and earth notes that are very much in keeping with the equally ripe, velvety and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess an abundance of tannin-buffering dry extract. There is good volume on the lovely and unusually understated though tautly muscular finish; indeed this is almost refined though there is enough lurking tannin to strongly suggest that this should enjoy a long aging curve. In short, the 2010 version is a clear step above the quality I usually find with this wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2010 Echezeaux is stunningly beautiful. I am not sure where the wine starts and ends. It just orbits in a very special place where all of the elements are beautifully balanced. Finely knit layers of dark red fruit, spices and mint are just some of the notes that emerge from the glass. But the Echezeaux is not about aromas or flavors, it is really much more about textural elegance and finesse. This is a dazzling showing. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
