Lot #40. René Engel Grands Echézeaux 1993

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 NM.
"Tasted at the evening dinner in Southwold. The ’93 Grands Echezeaux from Engel epitomizes everything great about this overlooked vintage. It has a pure, heavenly bouquet of dried herbs and fresh, tensile red berries…the essence of pinote. The palate is perfectly balanced with super-fine tannins that lends it crispness and lightness of touch, a sense of weightlessness in the mouth. It expands beautifully in the glass: vibrant and harmonious with delicate tart red cherries and fresh strawberry on the mineral-rich finish. It’s all texture and transparency. Outstanding. Tasted January 2012." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Jul 2012
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Notes: Nicked and lightly wrinkled capsule, wine stained and lightly scuffed label.
