Echezeaux Emmanuel Rouget 2016 (750ML)
93-95 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 EchÃ©zeaux Grand Cru comes from three parcels within the grand cru. Emmanuel told me that it was frosted 30% but between 10% to 20% lost in terms of buds. It has a tightly wound bouquet, the fruit a little darker than I was expecting, perhaps shaded by the vivacity of the les Beaumonts. The palate is well balanced with firm tannin, dark cherries and blueberry, a touch of licorice that frames a confit-like, vivacious finish that lingers longer than I was anticipating. This is a classy, inevitably delicious EchÃ©zeaux." 12/17
92-95 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A very dense nose flashes notes of plum liqueur, black fruit and a wonderfully broad range of exotic Asian-style spice that in particular includes sandalwood. The rich, generous and velvet-textured flavors caress the palate thanks to the seemingly endless reserves of dry extract that imparts a real sense of volume to the firm, dusty and mouth coating finish that displays sneaky good length. In sum this is at once powerful yet seductive and in particular I like the sense of harmony. This should be genuinely great in time." 01/18
95 Points, William Kelley, Decanter: "Rouget's Echezeaux was the most brooding and reserved wine in the cellar when I tasted it in October 2017, but its considerable potential is already apparent. Notes of smoky black fruit, bonfire, spice and truffle are framed by some lavish new oak, preceding a full-bodied, deep wine with considerable mid-palate volume, vibrant fruit and good concentration. Rouget declares that this Echezeaux personifies 'mastered power', and it's hard to disagree." 09/17
