This 2017 Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Echezeaux Grand Cru is a rich and feminine wine, with a clear garnet or ruby red hue. When young, it offers vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas with hints of red fruits and spices. As it ages, the nose evolves to reveal scents of mushrooms, truffles, and woodland undergrowth, adding to the complexity of the bouquet. The palate is spirited and balanced, with a succulent fullness and aromas of red fruits. The tannins are fine, delicate, and fairly supple, making this wine fat and mellow. It is best enjoyed with red meat, game, or poultry.
