2015 Domaine Forey
Echezeaux & Clos Vougeot  
Only $149.99/bottle Each 
 94 Burghound
 
One of Burgundy's Biggest Grand Cru Bargains
 

These are flat out great buys for the superb 2015 Burgundy vintage. Sub-$300 Echezeaux with great press is not easy to come by. These are definitely good 'old school' burgundies that exhibit a spiciness and rustic quality that's easy to love.

Tasting note: Here the discreetly wooded nose is more reserved with its array of ultra-spicy purple fruit aromas. The equally serious broad-shouldered flavors are both bigger and more powerful thanks to the excellent mid-palate density, all wrapped in a markedly firm and lingering finish that is also very clearly built-to-age. This is impressive but it's not an Ech of refinement; indeed as good as it is it's borderline rustic. Still, I was impressed by the potential. Allen Meadows - Burghound

Tasting note: This too is moderately oaked with notably ripe aromas of wild red berries, newly turned earth, forest floor and a hint of lavender. There is outstanding richness to the overtly powerful, concentrated and mouth coating flavors that conclude in a youthfully austere, backward and ultra-serious finish. I wouldn't even consider opening one of these bad boys before it has at least 10 years of age. Allen Meadows – Burghound

Tasting note: There is just enough reduction present to push the ripe mix of earthy dark fruit and underbrush aromas to the background so I would suggest decanting this for half an hour first if you're tempted to try a bottle young. There is ample dry extract on the robust, muscular and intense flavors that display a distinct gaminess on the textured and solidly long and dusty finish that is supported by ripe tannins. This will require at least a decade for this full-boded, rustic and very serious effort to come together. Outstanding – Allen Meadows – Burghound
