gave this bottle more time than the last one - opened 3 hours ahead and let it breathe. Benefits great - very open and attractive. More on the red fruit side, earthy, bit of spice. Very consistent aromas from nose, body to follow-through. Fine. Long life ahead but seems very ready now.

(DRC Grands Echezeaux) JP remarked how the 1991 DRC Grands Echezeaux‘ needs time.’ It was blacker in its fruit, also possessing aromas of menthol, forest and bread soaked in something. The palate was thick, big and young, again with lots of black fruits and very good in a beef bouillon way. There were hints of garden here as well, but midnight struck and its fruit was nowhere to be found, as the wine shut down in the glass rather than open more
(DRC Grands Echezeaux) A 1991 DRC Grands Echezeaux had aromas of stems and bay water, salty and with additional aromas of dirty rose, beefaroni and lime. The palate was soft and polished, stemmy yet simple overall.
