    (DRC Montrachet) The 1999 DRC Montrachet was deeper and more reticent with a very heavy feel in the nose. There was spice and light alcohol, and a touch of bruise and brood. The palate was rich and balanced, a bit square and also a touch sweet. DRC Montrachets can often be prone to a touch of botrytis due to the late picking that the Domaine practices. The ’99 wasn’t over the top like the ’98, more typical of the brooding and muscular style of the vintage for white Burgundy. Hollywood Jef found it to be ‘infanticide.’ It was served from Jero, after all (94+J).

    (DRC Montrachet) The 1999 DRC Montrachet took control of our first flight with its spiny character. Gil admired ‘Chanel No. 5,’ while someone else called it ‘the most pungent,’ part of its spiny quality. The nose was full of anise, hot stones and minerals, and there were nice flavors to match. Rocky, spiny, edgy and long, the ’99 rocked and rolled over the previous two, and it was ‘the biggest of the flight, obviously,’ as King Richard decreed

    (DRC Montrachet) I had one more move left in me off the list, a couple bottles of 1999 DRC Montrachet. It seemed like a good time to freshen up the palate with a white wine, although this was far from a spritzer. The DRC was luscious and rich, sweeter and more open than the Ramonet earlier that evening, although that Ramonet certainly seemed a long, long way away now. Very buttery and tropical, the DRC was chewy and forward for its age, but still very long and brooding on its earthy finish. Kisses of wood on its finish quickly turned into slaps of it, yet it all remained integrated in this big, brooding yet civilized white
