Tropical fruits.. lots of passion fruit... super well integrated oak. That mineral stone is unbelievable. over the next hour + continued to open up. Started to get more hints of citrus. Could have lasted for much longer. Really Beautiful.
Iconic wine, the oldest average vine age in the DRC holdings. (62 years old)It IS a good wine, but the price is way TOO high. 4000 USD per bottle? Come on! I'm not a billionaire, but I am fortunate that I had the chance to taste this wine. Personally speaking it was not as good as 2005 Louis Latour Montrachet for the sake of concentration, it was slightly watery in the finish. But the nose was superb, the balance as well as the body. I'm looking forward to drinking the legendary 1986, could I have the chance before I die?
Rich and explosive, dripping with orchard fruits and filling every crevice of the mouth with fruit/mineral nectar. For its sheer size it was harnessed by fabulous acidity and length of flavour was phenomenal.

(DRC Montrachet) Day three was at Picasso’s, one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas. What makes Picasso’s special besides the multi-million dollar paintings by its namesake hanging all over the restaurant, is the fact that it is one of the few restaurants in Vegas where the actual chef is in the restaurant every night. It makes a difference, and Julian Serrano was in fine form as always. We got off to another good start with the 2004 DRC Montrachet, whose nose jumped off the page. It was very musky and minerally, with aromas of sweet butter, spice, nuts and more musk. The palate was smooth, balanced and long, rounded and feminine in style. Bipin admired its ‘high acidity’ and felt it had a ‘great future.’ While its nose rippled with character, the palate of the ’04 was a bit coy and still missing some weight, although I am sure it will improve with time
