The 2016 Echézeaux Les Loachausses Grand Cru has a very detailed and focused bouquet. My instinct tells me that this is already beginning to close down compared to its showing from barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity, silky smooth in texture with a caressing white pepper tinged, black cherry and bilberry finish. There is still a little oak to be subsumed, but given the frost that affected this vineyard, this is a great success for Anne Gros. Tasted at the Domaine Direct Tasting in London.

Pretty lean and dark fruit forward. Not as much earth and oak as I would like on a grand cru.

Bright medium red. Reticent but very pure aromas of red cherry, spices and tobacco. Offers a lovely silky texture for the vintage, showing as much earth and tobacco character as red fruits and flowers. Not a particularly sweet style but distinctly fleshy in the context of the vintage. Its substantial tongue-dusting tannins call for patience but I could see starting to drink this wine at the same time as the Vosne villages. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar 2017)

Wild flower garden on the nose. Sour cherry and black cherry pallet. Slight black pepper, gardenia believe it or not. Such an elegant wine. .
