A very good bottle of aged red Burg drinking at the top of its game. Complex savoury aromatics of black tea, beef stock, mirepoix, decaying rose and freshly tilled black earth. It was fine and lacy in the mouth with vinous sweetness countering all of the savoury elements. It was quite gentle on the finish but still made its presence felt long after the wine was swallowed.

(DRC Romanee St. Vivant) A pair of DRC RSV’s was last, beginning with a 1982 DRC Romanee St. Vivant. The ’82 had a noticeably lighter color and that touch of ’82 stew like a soup kitchen. Earthy, dusty, gamy and toasty, its aromas became stewed cherries. Its palate was smooth, soft and round with still just a shred of semblance of support
