    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) Last time I had this bottle was two years ago and it was singing. It seems to be younger today than when I had it some time ago. Tight upon opening but after twenty minutes this was roaring aromatically and showing great DRC spice and floraity. A deep nose. Lots to inhale. Palate as Yaacov put it was "very '93." Lots of acid and tannin with somewhat disjointed flavors. The fruit was huge and massively concentrated. Tannins were big but ripe. This seemed to be in an awkward stage. I know this wine can be better. I would hold this for five more years.

    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) Lovely nose of asian spices, dried roses, bright melange of berry fruits, mineral. Very high-toned. Huge palate with great concentration and tannin. Tannins were ripe and balanced beautifully with all the components of the wine. Great purity and density in the mouth without being the slightest bit overwhelming. Had a nice sweetness of fruit and tannin. After around three hours open the wine began to shut down. Very expressive even in it's shut down state. Brilliant wine
