    (DRC Richebourg) The ’78 was full of menthol and dripping with oil in its nose, 1978 the right way, I wrote, as some have complained about bottle variation amongst the ’78 DRCs. This one was A-OK. Doug guessed ‘78 RC or Riche.’ Impressive. I guess it was served blind! It was fresh and with a pop to it, but the palate was softer than the nose led me to believe, and there was a touch of almost spritz or CO2 there that was peculiar, not off, but peculiar.

    (DRC Richebourg) There was this 1978 DRC Richebourg. It was a spectacular bottle of this wine. What was most noteworthy about it was how it showed even better than the 1971 we had earlier. The 1971 was still outstanding, but 1978 outshowing 1971 DRC was a new thing for me. What made it more significant was that it happened previously at Le Cirque when we had that quartet of RC’s last week; perhaps a changing of the guard is finally happening relative to ’78 over ’71? Although I am sure many will feel that there is no ‘change.’ Anyway, the ’78 Riche was full of menthol, rust, game, old book and wilted roses. It had a wealth of everything in just the right proportions. Flavors of meat, nut, game, animal, sappy caramel and nuts were all over this super creamy wine. Wow

    (DRC Richebourg) was smooth and tasty full of beef and menthol as ’78 DRCs are prone to be. It was classic and with sea salt flavors

    (DRC Richebourg) had impeccable balance and was still in its ascension
