Joseph Drouhin Grands Echezeaux 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2015 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru was a little more reduced on the nose than the Echezeaux at this early stage, though there appears to be great power and intensity waiting to unfurl. The palate is medium-bodied, intense with a very silky texture belying the backbone underneath. This is more masculine, perhaps even more austere than the Echézeaux, but it is beautifully balanced with a very long tail on the finish. There is ambition locked into this nascent Grand Cru." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate *(94-96 Points)*

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Decanted for 2 hours. Darker than I expected- Very angry nose at first; a hint of pepper, and a wall of acid. It settled down a lot and the nose had dark red fruits and tons of violet and minerals. The plate has a lot going on- great energy, lots of structure, some pepper and a hint of the 2004 green character- nothing overwhelming or negative- I thought it added good complexity. Won't open another one for 5-6 years.

A wonderfully spicy and positively gorgeous nose features a mélange of red, blue and black fruits as well as hoisin, clove, anise and warm earth, all of which are picked up by the rich, full and sweet flavors that possess excellent volume and real vi...

Palish red. Aromas of raspberry, smoke, earth and dried rose. Supple, round and fairly full, with strong soil tones and an impression of solid extract. There's a sweetness here, and the dusty tannins are fairly fine-grained, but this rather brooding ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Power and spice epitomize this wine, a firm, solid structure that keeps complexity and elegance as part of the package, and that will reward long aging. It may be big, but it keeps a sense of proportion, with dark fruits balanced with fresh acidity. ... Wine Enthusiast.
