Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-94 (2019 Jan.)

A strikingly floral-suffused nose offers up a mix of violet, lavender and rose petal that adds elegance to the blend of red cherry aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is fine intensity to the beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied and subtly mineral-driven flavors that possess a gorgeous mouthfeel, indeed the mid-palate is almost lacy, that gives way to an attractively textured and dusty finale. This isn't particularly dense but like the Malconsorts, it's really quite lovely in its fashion.

Vinous - Score: 91-93 (2019 Jan.)

The 2017 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a well defined bouquet of red and black fruit, the hints of black olive and light undergrowth turning into more tea leaf and bay leaf aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly rustic tannin and a little oaky at the moment, but there is sufficient fruit to subsume the wood. I would just like a little more complexity to show through on the finish, like the Malconsorts.
