Saturated ruby-red. Very ripe, inviting aromas of black raspberry, chocolate and menthol Sweet and lush but with surprising acidity giving the wine a penetrating character; a piquant note of blood orange reinforces the impression of clarity while leavening the wine's density. Thick but youthfully imploded wine with a palate-saturating, rising finish featuring a juicy note of tart cherry stomp. A superb Echézeaux in the making. (95) STEPHEN TANZER

In my view this is perhaps the most under-rated wine in the Méo portfolio, assuming that a grand cru anywhere could be under-rated. An ultra-spicy nose flashes a fresh and ripe mélange of red currant, violet, lavender and wisps of Asian-style tea. The juicy and impressively concentrated flavors possess a gorgeous texture thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that once again does a fine job of buffering the firm tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finish. This is at once powerful yet refined and built-to-age. (95) BURGHOUND
