Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-94 (2018 Jan.)

Slightly more obvious wood treatment frames the notably spicier and floral-infused aromas of both red and dark currant along with a hint of tea. The velvety, concentrated and sappy flavors are more refined as well as more powerful while the impressively persistent finish is shaped by ripe tannins. This is quite firm but not rustic and I particularly like the balance here.

Vinous - Score: 93 (2019 Oct.)

The 2016 Echézeaux Les Loachausses Grand Cru has a very detailed and focused bouquet. My instinct tells me that this is already beginning to close down compared to its showing from barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity, silky smooth in texture with a caressing white pepper tinged, black cherry and bilberry finish. There is still a little oak to be subsumed, but given the frost that affected this vineyard, this is a great success for Anne Gros. Tasted at the Domaine Direct Tasting in London.
