2008 Echezeaux Les Loachausses Grand Cru, Anne Gros
Tasted out of barrel at the Domaine. The sophomore Echezeaux from Anne Gros has a tight, slightly earthy nose with notes of blackcurrant leaf, raspberry and a touch of chalk coming through. The palate is medium-bodied on the entry but then in the mouth impresses with its weight and the way it spreads across the mouth. Good backbone here, racy acidity complemented by fresh brambly black fruits infused with a fine sense of minerality towards the bitter cherry finish that just takes its foot off the accelerator.
