After tasting a bottle this week, we are happy to report this is a stunning bottle of Grands Echezeaux! The wine possessed all the components for greatness and was very reminiscent of a young 1990 version of this wine. If you are going to buy one grand cru from the vintage, you will be hard-pressed to find a better wine, especially for the price. We only have a few cases left in stock!
One of the top wines of the Domaine, the Mongeard's Grands Echezeaux, comes from vines between 40 and 70 years old. They own a reasonably large portion of the vineyard, almost 1.5 of roughly 9 hectares total, located in a prime location right in the middle of the vineyard. It is a favorite of John Gilman, who has been enjoying this wine since his early days, usually giving the Grands Echezeaux 95 points. 2018 is a riper vintage, and that works very well with the Mongeard's bolder style, but is not lacking in any complexity or balance. They do exceptionally well with this vineyard, and this will be the best pricing by far for this wine or any Grands Echezeaux.
