Tasting Notes for Echezeaux - DRC, 1993:
The medium ruby-colored Echezeaux offers a fragrant, open nose of red and black fruits, and spicy, smoky new oak, excellent concentration, good power, medium body, and plenty of firm tannin in the closed, compact, clean finish. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 12-15. The DRC's 1993s possess the vintage's toughness, tannic structure, austerity, and aging potential. They will not be flattering to drink in their youth, and most will require 6-10 years of cellaring. Typical of the vintage, they appear to be the most tannic and structured wines made at this domaine since 1983.
