Red brick color. Nose of tea, with pronounced savoury aromas. Sweet and subdued mouthfeel, with a gentle palate showing wisps of fruit flavors, wood and stone. Like a graceful and elegant old lady, this had an understated charm. Still a pleasure to drink after 42 years, this is an amazing wine.

(Marey-Monge Romanee St. Vivant) Just an explosion of earth and spice on the nose along with hints of mulberry and chinese tea. Very exotic and animal at the same time if that makes sense. The nose kept changing and eventually developed into a truffle sort of thing but also with the aformentioned spice and berry fruit. On the palate lots of sweet berry fruit framed in spice and even slight notes of game. Long finish that just ends on its own terms. Amazing complexity and finesse. Easily the best aged red burgundy I have ever had. What a treat!!
(Marey-Monge (Domaine de la Romanée-Conti) Romanée St. Vivant) Bricked and slightly browning light medium red color with pale meniscus; deep strawberry nose; rich, concentrated, beautiful, strawberry, sous bois palate with resolved tannins; long finish
