The 2002 Grands Echezeaux from Millot was a true pleasure. The nose was quite open and developed, with raspberries, strawberries, cherries and a fine mineral note. On the palate also red fruits, quite developed with soft matured fruit. A very good balance and first and foremost a very charming wine. On the negative side, the wine could do with a little more concentration, and length. But still this is a wonderful and charming wine with a good expression of the terroir.
(Drink from 2014) Fine – 91p

- Terroir Insight: Jean Marc Millot Côte de Nuits Village Normally when I make Terroir Insights its the famous vineyards and often the classified terroirs. This is however not the case this week as I now head to Comblanchien just south of the Premeaux/Nuits-Saint-George appellation. I have … rarely … tasted wines from Comblanchien – or should I say never knowingly tasted wines from this small ...
