I guess I like this more than the previous CT tasters, or perhaps I just waited long enough as I thought this terrific. I am also pre-disposed as I’m a big fan of Ecards and have had great success with the SLB 1ers as they approach 20.
2000 Maurice Écard Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Narbantons- France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru (9/8/2017)
This one opens with the smell of aged red Burgundy. Forest floor, fall weather, it smells like football season and sweaters. There is a lively red fruit that really zings right out of the glass. A youthful vibrancy. Creamy mid-palate comes on backed by tart red fruit. Over an hour plus, each glass was as good as the last. This seems to be doing just fine.
Nice, Mark. I have a handful of notes on CT on mid '90s Ecards. '95-96 Peiullets and '96-98 Narbantons and Jarrons. I’d buy any of those wines again all day long.
Hope yours show well! That I’d bet they do! Cheers.
This sounds really good, Dennis. I have some but not a lot of experience with Ecard. I have more experience with the wines of Narbantons in general and find that they have a round, tender, suppleness to them other Savigny-les-Beaune wines seldom have. I can appreciate that this 2000 was singin’.
