This bottle not as good as one prior at La Paulee, but still a nice drink. The nose seemed to wax and wane..it did get better with time. Nice balance with a fair amount of acid on the finish. There is still good fruit on the palate. 92 pts.

(DRC (Marey-Monge) Romanee St. Vivant) A 1961 DRC (Marey-Monge) Romanee St. Vivant was instantly crowned ‘wine of the night’ by one, and its smoky, mature nose seduced with mesquite, earth, bread, chocolate and ‘soy’ aromas. The palate was meaty and gamy with a hint of tropical fruit in this excellent red (93).
(Romanee St. Vivant Marey-Monge (DRC)) had a deep, heavy nose full of plums and black fruits, with a pinch of brown sugar sweetness, earth, leather, chocolate, coffee and hay. The palate was also heavy and thick with a medium finish, nice balance and good flavors on the oat and sugar side
