"A subtle touch of wood serves as a suitably discreet backdrop for the exceptionally floral-infused nose that offers up additional notes of spice, red currant and pekoe tea. The rounder and slightly less intense flavors are still blessed with excellent punch and power while exhibiting more salinity on the built-to-age finish. This is more refined than the Grands Ech but not quite as complex, at least not today." -Allen Meadows

"The 2016 La Grande Rue Grand Cru was not affected by the frost, thankfully. This is (again) attested by the aromatics that convey a sense of joie de vivre and energy. Does that come from the relief of being spared? It offers wonderful red cherries, blood orange and yuzu scents combing with minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, impressive depth and grip in the mouth. Maybe this year it does not quite convey the same aristocratic personality as the Grands Echézeaux but there is real muscle and depth on the finish. Give this four or five years in barrel at least. " -Neal Martin
