Échezeaux Grand Cru, 2012, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux
Note: from a .7 ha parcel in Les Rouges du Bas; 70% whole cluster
A penetratingly floral nose offers up a broad ranging array of scents that include spice, plum, dark pinot fruit and red currant.
There is a suppleness to the mid-palate that makes this approachable already yet the energetic and powerful flavors tighten up fast on the saline-infused, intense and hugely finish. This is breathtakingly persistent and should drink well early but age very well too.
