Of all the Domaine's wines, this is the most forward. It opens up sooner than the others, with a ravishing clarity of expression, uncomplicated and cleanly etched; a caressing softness cloaks a steely skeleton which permits it to evolve with elegance. He is the younger brother of Grands Échézeaux, the glorious elder whose fortune Échézeaux aspires to equal. It sometimes comes very close when it speaks with the muscular language of the conquistadors.

The 2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru is a bigger, richer wine that pushes on the ripeness scale, offering a monster bouquet of red and black fruits, licorice, spice, and roasted herb-like nuances, with a kiss of violets emerging with time in the glass. Needing plenty of air to show at its best, it's full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, with a much broader, more expansive, and hedonistic style. However, its balance and precision lag the 2018, and this is a beast of wine that could be mistaken for a Grenache at this young stage. It's going to take some time to shed its considerable baby fat and should have two decades or more of longevity. While I suspect the 2018 will be the longer-lived wine, I doubt it will ever match the 2019 for sheer hedonistic pleasure or sexiness.

Deeper pitched than the domaine's Corton, the 2019 Échézeaux Grand Cru exhibits aromas of blackberries, plums, exotic spices, orange rind and rose hips. Full-bodied, rich and ample, its broad, textural attack segues into a deep and concentrated mid-palate and a long, saline finish. This is a sensual, enveloping, elegantly muscular Échézeaux that has fulfilled all the promise it showed in barrel.

The 2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru is a powerhouse. Dark, rich and explosive, the 2019 packs a huge punch. There is plenty of intensity in the blue/purplish-tinged fruit. The domaine's Echezeaux is often a charmer, but that is not the case here, at least not today. At times, the 2019 feels a bit heavy. It will be interesting to see how it ages.
