  • Second La Paulee Warmup Dinner (Ai Fiori - New York NY): Served in a mini DRC Echezeaux vertical, all open ~45 minutes before serving and double decanted. Lush and very ripe red cherry and berry with lots of spice that's unmistakably Vosne-styled. Very enjoyable today, but I really look forward to trying this in another decade+ as the baby fat softens and the concentration and raw materials really unfold into the wine this can be. This remained largely unchanged over the course of several hours tonight. In a sensational flight, this was my least favorite tonight, but i think this will be best from 2025 forward.

  • Det är lite som en högtidsstund varje gång man får testa DRC. Tack Patrik!

    doften är väldigt biffig, med gröna stjälkiga toner och en aningen rökigt så jag gissade på att detta var en riktigt bra amerikansk pinot från russian river...
    smaken är väldigt grön, men ändå tydlig pinotfrukt, ingen tvekan om den saken men tyvärr är vinet bara jättegott och lever inte riktigt upp till förväntingarna man har på en sån här flaska.
    mycket gott till maten men inget vin att sitta och småsippa på.
    kommer säkert utvecklas mycket i framtiden (92-94)

    On the palate, Rosehip, raspbarry, green herbs and twigs, dry fruit with a balanced structure.
    Long finish

  • Very different from last time I tasted this, up on release.
    This is going thru a phase now, showing very different, and perhaps not very 2009 (which is a good thing too me!)
    Nose is very green, with stalks/stems, dry herbs and grass and dust.
    Very Cabernet Franc like.
    Green & vegetal, with some earth, minerals and spices present.
    It was dusty and green up on release, but these ingredients are even more prominent right now.
    Palate shows fine and dry tannins and good structure, with somewhat dry fruit, red berries, high acidity and good length.
    Same green profile with stems present, as on the nose.
    However, very far from the 2002, 2006, 2008 and 2010 DRC Echezeaux’s I have tasted in later time, and in this state of development, not nearly as good as those vintages of the same wine.
    The good thing is that the almost sweet and overripe dark fruit previously shown in this wine, is not as all as prominent, but are getting dryer and cleaner.
    Fine cherries and ripe raspberries, with a long finish.
    Hopefully a good sign of where the 2009’s may end up, on the other side?
    This was good, and my wine of the night in tonight’s blind sampling of 12 wines.
    It really came along with more time in the glass, and showed better and better during the evening.
    (92 – 94)

  • Decanted an hour. Cherry and spice on the nose, incredibly rich dark fruited palate with more spice, and great length with a dark cherry finish. Full palate, medium red to the eye. Wonderful young wine, very enjoyable now even with the obvious many years left.
