"Tremblay's 2006 Echezeaux du Dessus (three barrels – as with other crus here, only one-third new – and all from destemmed fruit) combines cedar, brown spices, citrus oils, and toasted coconut with dried cherry. Firm, surprisingly viscous, and palpably dense on the palate, it is underlain with meat stock as well as with chalk that seems to "cool down" the pungent spice and warmly ripe, lightly-desiccated fruit. Fortunately, there is an ample sense of glycerin here to help ameliorate the fine-grained but insistent abrasion of tannin. This strikes me as Echezeaux looking toward Clos Vougeot. In the final analysis, though, I find the yet more striking pungency of the village Vosne and its abundance of fresh fruit juiciness more convincing. It will be fascinating to follow this for at least 6-8 years and see whether its formidable structure will be justified by the evolution of its flavors. Unfortunately, Tremblay was not able to access the fruit this year that supplied her two precious barrels of 2005 Vosne-Romanee Beaumonts."
