No whole bunch. Good tension on the nose. Though a little sweet on the palate. Spicy. Then lots of tannin. Very much for the long term but I prefer the nose to the palate at the moment. Just a tiny bit muddy on the end.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040

The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru du Dessus, which was completely destemmed, has a lovely bouquet, very harmonious and perhaps showing more complexity than the Chapelle-Chambertin at the moment. The mineralité really comes through here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, vibrant and vivacious with perfectly judged acidity. This is a really quite beautiful Echézeaux for long term aging (if you can resist temptation).
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2034
(from 50-year-old vines):Good dark red; not as lucid as the Chapelle. The nose shows a strong musky, meaty reduction, with aromas of dark raspberry, violet and mocha emerging with some aeration. Sweet, smooth, plush and fine-grained, offering impressive volume without any undue weight. Finishes suavely tannic, seamless and very long. Tremblay reiterated that she would wait until June or July to bottle her top 2014s. Superb potential here.
