2019 Jean Pierre Guyon Echezeaux Grand cru

2019 Jean Pierre Guyon Echezeaux Grand cru


Again, the theme of knee buckling beauty and class continues with this oh-so-deliciously-fascinating contrast with the 1er cru Orveaux. In fact, Isabelle (Jean-Pierre’s wife) told me that when tasting this, she compares it to an emotion like tasting petit JesĂș dans des culottes de velour (baby Jesus in velvet underwear), or as some Belgian clients put it more crudely, like drinking the peepee of baby Jesus….. ;0 It is that kind of seriously profound, emotion provoking pleasure….This is from contiguous vines in the Orveaux portion of the Echezeaux Grand cru, and you can sense clear as day the merits of the hierarchy. Even deeper in aromatic and flavor depth, with all things amplified a bit in their intensity, both floral, fruit, and mineral. This is an essence of upper slope Echezeaux; once again, this is reference point good….a little * awarded here. This is plain incredible wine at its transcendent best.

“100% mixed forests, to bottle in April. Fine mid purple. The nose is not so drop dead stunning as the Clos Vougeot but it is still impressive, and then the palate delivers yet more. Some rose petals, some vibrant deep red fruit, chiselled and intense at the same time, nuanced without latticework. Then a firm structure. Looks like becoming a great wine but under the cosh from the Clos Vougeot this year. But there is a breadth of fruit here nonetheless. Drink from 2030-2040. Tasted: November 2023.” 95-98 Jasper Morris “Four Star Wine”
