    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) The third flight began with a wine that would have exceeded expectations and went beyond its boundaries. SuperSomm noted, ‘fresh raspberry and peach smoothie with a touch of something naughty.’ I was definitely in the Burgundy camp, ‘1971-ish,’ I wrote. If it wasn’t 1971, it had to be 1969 Rousseau, the only wine from that vintage that showed the same freshness, citricity, rose and acidity. The palate was wow times two, long and fantastic. Rose and citricity dominated, and I was stunned to see this be a 1969 DRC Romanee St. Vivant. Many 1969 DRC’s are on the drier and autumnal side, but this was a magical bottle and the greatest 1969 I have ever had, except for Rousseaus, the wines of the vintage without question (96).
