The Echezeaux 2008 from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a vivid and expressive treat. It’s very energetic and vibrant, lovely acidiy, open and forward fruit – really showing both terroir and a gorgeous display of fruit. Perhaps not the biggest Echezeaux made – but showing beautifully .. with a magnificent balance. Lovely spicy nose and a deligtful airy feel.
In my view one of the most lively and interesting Echezeauxs I have tasted from Domaine de la Romanée-de-Conti.
