2006 Louis Jadot Grand Echezeaux

"A very spicy nose evidences notes of clove, anise, soy and smoke as well as blue fruit and violet aromas, all trimmed in generous wood that can also be found on the rich, full, detailed, lush and layered big-bodied flavors that are more powerful than those of the Ech and exhibit an intensity that does a slow but sure build to an explosive finish. I like this a lot as the quality of the raw materials is first rate and while it`s presently carrying more wood than I can get excited about, it shouldn't be a problem absorbing it in time." [+]
