    (DRC Romanee Conti) A 1964 DRC Romanee Conti magnum wasn’t off, but it was a bit softer and shy than I expected based on my experience with the vintage and specifically the DRCs. There were dusty old flavors and aromas, more on the book and earth side, possessing a lot of classic qualities without the power that should go with it. The wine was what it was, perhaps just not the best barrel. Since DRC did bottle barrel by barrel back then, bottle variation is to be expected.

    (DRC Romanee Conti) The 1964 DRC Romanee Conti was also great. I even conceded the notes were over, but ‘this is the shit.’ It also got a ‘yum yum deeeelish.’ It was party-time.

    (DRC Romanee Conti) Holy shit, a 1964 DRC Romanee Conti. When it rains, it pours, but this was a downright typhoon already! The ’64 was rich and saucy, so textured and seductive. Bohr observed ‘that tomato skin thing’ that old DRC’s can have, and it also had a rich bouillon quality. Lush and still strong, this was again a great bottle from an ‘up and down’ vintage that definitely took me to the ‘up’ side. This was an intense and deep experience

    (DRC Romanee Conti) which possessed such perfume. Its nose was also full of deep, dark fruits, incredibly deep and rich. ‘Violet city,’ I wrote. The palate had the rust, iron and iodine of RC and an amazing spine. The citric vigor on the finish was classic, and cola flavors emerged. Long and sturdy, the 1964 was still missing something in the middle yet also ‘immature’ as Rob noted. It was great but a touch shy…in the middle, that is, as its front had the animal and its back the power and definition
