This is the ripest and most aromatically complex wine to this point yet despite the heightened maturity, the nose remains quite cool and airy with ample spice notes characterizing the blue and black Pinot fruit that also evidence background notes of violets and rose petal. The seductive and broad-shouldered flavors are blessed with plenty of dry extract which confers a sappy texture to the firmly structured and strikingly well-balanced finish. This is so poised that it is Zen-like in its sense of harmony.

Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Château de Vosne. The 2008 Echézeaux Grand Cru is the first great Echézeaux under Louis-Michel Liger-Belair. Tasted twice in recent weeks, there is wondrous delineation and poise on the nose, real mineralité and sophistication. The palate is taut and crisp on the entry with blood orange, maraschino and marmalade that fans out in confident fashion on the vital finish. What a superb Echézeaux – it even shadows the 2009! The first great Echézeaux under Louis-Michel.
