Domaine Jean Tardy et Fils, Echezeaux Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes Les Treux 2015
The 2015 Echézeaux Les Treux Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is aged in 80% new oak. It has an intriguing bouquet with black fruit, incense, black tea and truffle aromas that are neatly intermingled. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, hints of blueberry and cassis, fleshy and quite powerful, yet there is no sense of being overbearing on the finish. It will need four or five years to fully integrate and subsume the wood, but it will be worth the wait.
