Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Echézeaux Grand Cru La Grande Complication 2014 750ml
Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
This is also very generously oaked and it's enough to fight with the super ripe and borderline roasted dark berry fruit scents. There is excellent richness to the full-bodied and velvety flavors that also possess very good mid-palate concentration along with very solid dry extract. Here too there is a touch of chocolate on the lengthy finish where the wood resurfaces and overall this is certainly impressive in its fashion but it's not for me.
Character of the wine
Just like the precision and know-how of the best watchmakers, each bouquet from our Grande Complication is expressed with purity and authenticity.
First, the wild berries - intense blackcurrant and lively raspberry- reveal all of the splendour of this selection of grains. Then, the subtleness of the aromas comes out as sweet spicy notes.
Then there’s silence.
Harmony, power, finesse and purity blend in a precious and complex movement. The scale of the site is perfectly calibrated and the grandeur of the Pinot Noir is sublimating. Our Grande Complication requires time to express itself with the emotions more intense as this exceptional quest goes on.
