1999 Rene Engel Grands Echezeaux
Burghound 95 pts!  Despite now being nine years old, this is just as primary, backward and serious as it was from cask and still displays the spicy and notably ripe red and black pinot fruit that is nuanced by noticeable earth and underbrush notes that merge into big, rich and well-muscled flavors that are borderline robust and brimming with buckets of dry extract, all wrapped in a sappy finish that deliver flat out phenomenal length. As I wrote in 2000, this is "textbook Grands-Echézeaux" and there nothing in here that would suggest otherwise. Note that plenty of patience will still be required as this will be close to 20 years of age before it has reached its full potential. (Drink starting 2017)
