This is pure and focused, exhibiting black currant, cherry, violet, mineral and spice flavors married to a firm, vibrant structure. The black currant and violet notes hold true on the finish, as this does not want to quit. Best from 2014 through 2028.—B.S.

In this vintage, Echézeaux reveals an extra edge of really ripe, full fruits. They are balanced by the firm wood- and spice-laden structure, with the tannins and intense acids adding the final touches. Age this over 7–8 years.
Score: 92 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
While it has all the structure of Gevrey-Chambertin, it also has the richness of the vintage. This strikes a healthy balance between the two, creating a powerful wine that’s full of black fruits and sweet tannins, with a firm, dry core. Age for 5–6 years.
Score: 92 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
This is rich, complex and full of ripe fruit. A firm structure underlies the richness, lending concentration and density. The fruit is still reticent and will show more generously in another year. Age for five years.
Score: 90 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
This is broad and quite soft, with a dense, jammy red-fruit flavor. It has tannins that are buried in the rich fruit, giving shape to the wine. This is likely to mature soon.
Score: 89 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
This is finely structured, with its ripe tannins forming a solid base for the dense red fruit and spicy wood flavors. It’s soli and chunky, showing its youth through the rich texture. Age for 3–4 years.
Score: 89 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Enthusiast
With its layers of wood and sweet fruit, this is both well textured and rich. It’s balanced with acidity, giving the wine a tighter edge while also emphasizing the ripe fruit. Keep for a year, but this can also be consumed now.
Score: 87 | November 1, 2012 | Wine Spectator
Fresh, zesty wild berry and raspberry are the core flavors, with touches of spice and licorice. Medium-weight and supple in texture. Drink now through 2017. 20,000 cases made.
