2017 Domaine Dujac Echezeaux Grand Cru Cote de Nuits
Decanter - "Dujac's single 0.23ha parcel in the lower part of Les Champs Traversins is one of their younger vineyards, having been planted in the early 1980s. With 90% whole bunches and 70% new oak, this is an intensely floral, spicy, perfumed number with violet top-notes, chalky minerality and a tapering, refreshing finish. A classy grand cru bottling. Drinking Window 2022 - 2030. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2017 Echezeaux Grand Cru is also showing very well, having gained in depth and precision in the year since I last tasted it. Opening in the glass with aromas of red berries, cherries, orange rind, sweet soil tones, spices and peonies, it's medium to full-bodied, with a broader, more textural attack than the Malconsorts, underpinned by similarly powdery tannins and lively acids. This looks to be a longer-haul proposition than I had imagined, and at least a modicum of patience will be in order."
Burghound - "A strikingly floral-suffused nose offers up a mix of violet, lavender and rose petal that adds elegance to the blend of red cherry aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is fine intensity to the beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied and subtly mineral-driven flavors that possess a gorgeous mouthfeel, indeed the mid-palate is almost lacy, that gives way to an attractively textured and dusty finale. This isn't particularly dense but like the Malconsorts, it's really quite lovely in its fashion. 91-94pts"
Vinous - "The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a well defined bouquet of red and black fruit, the hints of black olive and light undergrowth turning into more tea leaf and bay leaf aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin and a little oaky at the moment, but there is sufficient fruit to subsume the wood. I would just like a little more complexity to show through on the finish, like the Malconsorts. 91-93pts"
