Lot #125. Emmanuel Rouget Echézeaux 2008

Description: Consists of 3 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 92-93 WA.
"Candied cherry, marzipan, kirsch, and cinnamon on the nose of Rouget’s 2008 Echezeaux carry over into a palate at once obviously structured and sweetly ripe, with a steady flow of cherry and black raspberry as well as soothing glycerin (despite the wine’s modest – circa 13% – alcohol). Both smoked and roasted meat flavors lend depth, and this lingers with a terrific balance of freshness and sweetness, fine-grained tannin and glyceral richness. It deserves at least 4-5 years in bottle to develop almost inevitable further complexity and should be worth following . . ." Wine Advocate #189, Jun 2010
Provenance: The Besançon Cellar
