As it should be, this is more elegant still with a bit more of everything, particularly aromatic complexity. A classy nose of black berry and broad range of spices including hoisin, clove, anise, cinnamon and exotic tea that merges seamlessly into the rich, full and superbly intense and powerful flavors that explode on the fantastically long finish. This is a 'wow' wine that really makes a statement as it's built for the very long haul. One to buy. Allen Meadows, Burghound Apr01,2007
The 2005 Grands-Echezeaux offers tart, slightly bitter black raspberry fruit, deep meatiness and a marrow-like richness, a creamy texture almost paradoxically accompanying persistent, invigorating brightness of fresh fruit, and a long, intense finish that preserves the refinement present in the Echezeaux but adds weight. This is another instance of sublimated tannins, although my intuition is that there is no lack of structure buried beneath the surface and that a decade or more of cellaring would be warranted. ||Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth, but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines, which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these – particularly from the Cote de Beaune – displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration, traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites. A brief July rain that reached the Cote de Nuits but not the Cote de Beaune was critical, he asserts, and all of Jadot’s vines in the northern Cote were picked before the harvest in the south commenced. (Wines from the Domaine Louis Jadot, Domaine Heritiers Louis Jadot, or Domaine Gagey, have been identified with a letter “D” in their listings.)||Also recommended: 2005 Cote de Nuits-Villages Le Vaucrain ($25.00;86+?), 2005 Santenay Clos de Malte ($27.00; 85-87), 2005 Savigny-les-Beaune Aux Guettes (84-86+?), 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges ($37.00; 85-87+?), 2005 Chambolle-Musigny ($50.00; 85-87+?).
