94 – 95 points, Steen Öhman,

A great treat was the Joseph Drouhin, Musigny 1993. I was able to sample two different bottles, and the best example was truly splendid. The nose offered mature red fruit, sous-bois all infused with a detailed Musigny limestone minerality. On the palate – medium weight for a Musigny at least – fully mature, with mineral driven and vivid fruit. Lovely energy and complexity – showing a charming and elegant side of the 1993 vintage. A refined rather than a great Musigny. Quite some bottle variation – note for the best bottle tasted.

(Drink Now) – Outstanding – (94 – 95p) – Tasted 15/03/2018.

Site: surrounded by Clos Vougeot and Musigny, this a vineyard of great repute.

History & tradition: the name comes from "chezal" (plural "chezeaux"): a hamlet. The pronunciation, "Echeuzaux" (Ay-sheu-zo), is unchanged to this day, in spite of the accent placed on the name in the 20th Century ("Echézaux").

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin

“Elegance and perfection, two of Joseph Drouhin's tenets. The colour is bright and intense. A full palette of aromas
