Domaine Jean Tardy et Fils, Echezeaux Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Les Treux 2014
This is from a 78-year-old parcel on the flatter part of the grand cru, right next to Grands Echezeaux. A nose of spice box and spring florals, on the palate the tannins are fine, not too grippy. There's impressive depth, with the power of the wine just hiding the fruit a little right now. Everything there just needs time to relax. Great potential here, and likely to unfurl into something really special over time.
