Jean Grivot, Echezeaux 2007

The Echezeaux 2007 from Jean Grivot is a truly mineralic expression of the Echezeaux terroir. The bouquet is offering primary red berry fruit – spiced with slightly toasted oak notes and a superb minerality. On the palate fine concentration for the vintage …. quite muscular with a firm mineralic backbone from the beautiful Les Cruots terroir. The fruit is intense and weighty with a long intense mineral charged finish – with a slight vegetal note appearing after some time in the glass. Nevertheless – it’s a lovely Echezeaux – for those who love the mineralic style. Look out for the Grivot Echezeaux … it’s improving year after year.
