(DRC Les Gaudichots) was next, a bottle not from the famed cache from the Doris Duke cellar. The nose was ‘like whoa’ – thick, gamy, nutty; it was so sweet, rich and heavy in its aroma profile. Long and with nice texture, round and with great spine, this bottle was definitely reconditioned, a fresh Nicolas bottle reconditioned in 1985 before they sold off the last of their inventory. There was an abundance of plum and cherry cola flavors, and its acidity was rippling with loads of minerals on its finish. Big Boy had it in 98-99 point territory, but I had it (96+), finding it a touch youthful for that zip code.
