Wine Spectator 95 points - The 2005 Grands-Echezeaux displays an utterly different, less charming personality than its “little” sibling. Fresh black raspberry and black cherry hover between sorbet-like and faintly-caramelized manifestations. The palate is obviously dense, with considerable grip and ultra-fine tannins, incipient silkiness, but not the creaminess of the Echezeaux. Fresh berry, faintly tart fruit skin, and nut oils inform an uncannily kinetic finish that makes one’s mouth quiver.

"From the aromas, this is immediately more intense and profound, offering blackberry and violet notes. Very silky, rich and concentrated, this refined wine has more sweetness at its center, with great finesse and length" Wine Spectator 95 points Drink 2016-40
