Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret, Échezeaux Grand Cru 1996

mongeard-mugneret-echezeaux-2010

Imported by Vineyard Brands, Birmingham AL.

Twenty years on.

Pale ruby.  A blend of Les Treux and Echézeaux du dessus and he’s starting to emerge from the shadow factories of ’96.  Smoky atmosphere, silk and silver, wild-shot pheasant and a confit of cranberry brightened with orange zest.  The finish is an echo of Echézeaux, where another dimension waits to be discovered.  Now – 2021+.
