    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) The 1985 DRC Romanee St. Vivant was clearly a sibling of the Echezeaux, with a purer nose. There was more coffee to its nose, along with fresh red fruits and rainwater. Its palate was soft and beautiful, tender with its round and deceptively long personality. It got a bit dry over time in the glass, a knock on ’85 DRCs for some, but not a problem for me, usually (94).

    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) The 1985 DRC Romanee St. Vivant had beautiful menthol aromas, almost vitamin C too, and a rose hip nose that got spicier and more beef bouillon-y. The creamy, ripe palate had a touch of brett and got a little dirtier as time went on.

    (DRC Romanee St. Vivant) was a fresher style of '85. The fruit was redder, but the wine still had that dirty edge like La Tache - maybe it was the vintage rather than the bottles? Oily and nutty, there was more seaside action in the nose. There was a similar dirty edge to the smooth and supple palate
