2018 Mongeard-Mugneret Echezeaux

$159.99
2018 Mongeard-Mugneret Echezeaux
The 2018s from Mongeard have been fantastic and some of the best values for new release Grand Crus we have seen in a long time. The vintage played right into the style of Mongeard-Mugneret with their more forward, earlier drinking style but in recent years have gotten much more classic. Mongeards piece of Echezeaux is 1.82 hectares with vines ranging from 30-65 years old. 2018 saw some whole cluster fermentation due to the ripeness of the fruit with around 60% new oak. Right now, as William Kelley mentions below, it is very showy but has the classical underlining of a great grand cru, that should become more pronounced with age. Easily one of the best buys for Grand Cru Red Burgundy this is not to miss at this pricing.

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 93 points! "The 2018 Echézeaux Grand Cru is the broadest, most flamboyant wine in the range, bursting with aromas of raspberries, plums, licorice and toasty new oak. Full-bodied, rich and enveloping, it's gourmand and fleshy, with velvety tannins, succulent acids and an ample core of fruit. I suspect that after a decade in the cellar it will seem more classically proportioned than it does today—as has been the case with Mongeard's fine 2003s—though readers who appreciate riper styles of red Burgundy may also find it hard to resist in its youth. It's a blend of Echézeaux du Dessus and Les Treux."
