Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Echezeaux Grand Cru opens in the glass with a bouquet of cassis and plums with a generous framing of spicy new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and fine-grained, with the atypical concentration and depth at the core so characteristic of the 2015 vintage, and a surprisingly bright line of acidity which verges on the tart and depresses my score accordingly. Since Echezeaux normally produces some of the highest pH musts of all the Côte de Nuits' grands crus, I wonder if this was simply over-zealously acidified in this warm vintage? There are some good raw materials here, and I suspect time will be kind to the wine, but it is a bit angular and disjointed out of the gates.
