The 2016 Echezeaux Les Treux Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru comes from 80-year-old vines in the titular lieu-dit and it will be matured in 75% new oak. Like many, these were devastated by the frost (see producer intro). It has a pure bouquet, quite intense for an Echezeaux with intense black and blue fruit, minerals, crushed violet and a discrete brine influence. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, a fine line of acidity and just the right sappiness toward the finish to urge you back for another sip. After racking, this will inevitably soften and gain suppleness, then give it 5 or 6 years in bottle before broaching. Very fine, though just two barrels produced. 92-94 points. – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
