Joseph Drouhin, Echezeaux 1993
94 – 95 points, Steen Öhman, Winehog.org
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").

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