Echezeaux wines are a clear garnet or ruby red, the exact hue often varying considerably. When young these wines have vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas or a hint of torrefaction, combined with suggestions of red fruits and spices. After a few years the nose becomes vegetable or animal, with scents of mushrooms, truffles or woodland undergrowth. The great complexity of the bouquet makes this a wine which is both rich and feminine; it is silky, fat and mellow, with fine, delicate and fairly supple tannins. In the mouth the attack is spirited, the balance pleasant and there is a succulent fullness with aromas of red fruits. "from vines in Les Rouges du Bas planted in 1929 - Mongeard indicated that in 2009 he used 25% whole clusters. Somewhat surprisingly given the high percentage of new wood, this is reduced. As is usually the case however, the big-bodied and extremely concentrated flavors are brimming with extract which confers a seductive mouth feel to the austere and long but ever-so-mildly warm finish. The wood isn't shy on the finish but if there is any wine in the range that can successfully integrate its oak treatment, this is it." (Allen Meadows, Burghound, 01/11)
