- Yellow brown color and aromas of butterscotch, honey, grapefruit and orange blossom. It's balanced and has flavours of diacetyl (butter) and pineapple with a full body. Fleshy texture with a long finish - Perfect wine. Unbelievable.

(DRC Montrachet) By now, we were all up and about, stumbling, some bumbling. Wild Bill, one of San Francisco’s local wine sheriffs, had a bottle of 1998 DRC Montrachet in his hand, ready to fire. I referenced this bottle in the Nomadness article; a bottle of this a month definitely keeps the doctor away. This bottle was Botrytis City, which felt like a block away from Alphabet City with much higher rent. It wasn’t too far over the top despite its honeyed and Caramelo Anthony sweetness. It tasted great and was more filling with its coconut cream flavors (95).
(DRC Montrachet) The 1998 DRC Montrachet was initially not at all like the bottle I had had six weeks prior in San Francisco, at least in the nose. This was less extroverted, possessing aromas of mint, smoke, waterfall, musk, citrus and butter. However, the palate was super sweet again; it was practically dessert wine. The sea urchin and caviar dish cut the sweetness of the wine a bit. Even though it seemed more mature in San Fran, I liked that bottle better, although this bottle wasn’t what I would call one of 99 problems (93).
