  • Light pink in colour showing some maturity. Beautiful rose bouquet with hints of hoisin and caramel. Sweet red berry flavours on the palate. Elegant finish. Yummy wine!

  • A great example of a fully matured great Burgundy. The color is still opaque. Full bodied intense wine with all kinds of very complex flavor, once again oriental spice, expensive Chinese tea, some sort of darker version of raspberry jam, stewed tomatoes in good way. Great length and finish still very fruit driven. The wine really gained weight and got sweeter and sweeter. For some, wine of the night.

    (DRC Romanee Conti) A magnum of 1966 Romanee Conti was next. Yes, magnum. There was more animal in the nose than in the Richebourg. The RC was darker and beefier yet reticent with hints of bouillon. It was an intense ‘stonewall’ of a wine, very gamy and hearty on the palate with flavors of rose, rich meat and minerals. It stayed hearty and improved, displaying more thickness and the directions to iodine city. While the Richebourg may have had more finesse and caresse, the RC made its point loud and clear (97M).

    (DRC Romanee Conti) Justin, who ultimately won ‘most outstanding drunk’ for the evening, had another ace up his sleeve, a 1966 DRC Romanee Conti. He had forgotten about me as he was besieged with screaming fans once the RC started flowing, but thankfully the Inspector shared his glass with me. It was everything it should have been and then some, classic all the way. There was great spice, rose and menthol to this man amongst boys. The Inspector and I finally agreed on a score for a wine; I guess we need to share the same glass more often
