With vines located between Domaine Lamarche and Albert Bichot, the 2012 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru has a crystalline bouquet laced with vivacious red cherries, fresh strawberries and minerals that demonstrate more precision than the 2012 Echezeaux. The palate is extremely well-balanced, the mouth coming alive with tension and poise. Here, the 100% new oak is married more closely with the fruit thus allowing the terroir to shine though. This is Maxime’s piece de resistence in 2012.||“Noellat” might be a name synonymous with Vosne-Romanee for decades. However 22-year-old Maxime Cheurlin, Georges Noellat’s nephew, is a name to look for in the future. He grew up in Champagne rather than the Cote d’Or since his parents run a successful champagne house, but it seems that Maxime heard the calling and seems intent on reinstalling the family name in Burgundy. With some enviable parcels of vine scattered around the locale, Maxime works out of the family’s small cellars just behind his parents’ house whose conservatory offers a fantastic panorama across their holding of Les Chaumees. Stylistically, these wines reminded me of Sylvain Cathiard. Yes, there is a modern sheen lent by the new oak, although it only seemed to be slightly excessive with respect to the Echezeaux. Maxime seems to be a driven young vigneron whose tenets have been instilled from an early age, but wow – what potential! eRobertParker.com.December, 2013
