Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 90-93 (2015 Jan.)

This is also mildly reduced but not so much that the spice and floral characters are invisible. There is a much different texture here with its lush and generous rather than muscular palate feel to the seductively textured flavors that culminate in a structured, dusty and extract-rich finish. While this will reward extended keeping the richness is such that it should drink reasonably well young too.

Vinous - Score: 92-95 (2015 Apr.)

The 2013 Echézeaux, from Rouge du Bas, is striking. An unusually complex and multi-dimensional Echézeaux, Duband's 2013 boasts remarkable finesse and pedigree. The flavors are bright and energetic throughout. Delicate, lifted aromatics float above a core of resonant fruit. As good as the 2013 is today, the wine is showing a hint of its full potential. This is an absolutely sexy, super-expressive Burgundy from David Duband.
