Emmanuel Rouget, Echezeaux 2007

The Echezeaux 2007 from Emmanuel Rouget is currently showing very well. In the nose lovely expressive red fruit with hints of rose petals and liquorice. On the palate lovely quite openly knit red fruit with a fine expression of terroir. The midpalate is quite intense with a good energy – building up to the long and quite expressive finish. Perhaps lacking the refinement of the Echezeauxs from DRC and Liger-Belair – but love the balance and fruit expression – a fine and very enjoyable wine. Really impressive for the vintage!
