Echezeaux Grand Cru Maison Roche de Bellène 2015 Large Format - Jeroboam 300cl / 13.5%
This bottle was kindly donated by Goedhuis & Company Wine Merchants for The Cream Of The Crop Charity Auction in aid of The Drinks Trust to support drinks industry employees.
'This is both spicier and somewhat more expressive as well with its plummy aromas of tea, anise, clove, sandalwood and cassis. There is a rounder and much more seductive mouthfeel to the sappy and velvet-textured flavors that deliver fine length and reasonably good complexity for such a young wine. This is lovely and generous yet underneath the baby fat is a firm core of ripe tannins so this should age very well over the next 12 to 15 years. 93 points' Burghound, January 2018.
