1998 Rene Engel Echezeaux
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[90]

"I've never been totally convinced that the late, great Philippe Engel quite did the vintage worthy in 1998 and his Echézeaux Grand Cru testifies to that. It has a simple but nicely defined nose with decayed autumn leaves and pine sprinkled over the rustic red berry fruit. But there is a pleasant lift here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, nicely balanced with bitter cherry and sous-bois scents. It is a thoroughly enjoyable Burgundy at full maturity, yet it does not offer the panache of say, Engel's 2002 Clos de Vougeot that I tasted in the same month. Drink this now and over the next 5 to 7 years. Tasted June 2015." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Aug 27, 2015)
