  • The nose is stunning and perfumed. Such elegance and class. On the palate it is tight and unyielding. After a couple of hours in the decanter, it started to show a bit of its potential. This should be great but will require a lot of time. Let this sleep for 15-20 years.

  • The 2006 DRC RSV is a lovely, ethereal wine, and comparatively open at this early stage, bursting from the glass with aromas of red and black raspberry, wild strawberry, violets and a framing vanilla oak. On the palate the wine is sappy—even juicy—and expansive, with some deceptively refined tannins belying serious structure and depth that will likely only reveal themselves with another decade in the cellar.

  • This behaved quite strangely showing some beef stock and sweet brown sugar notes at first and I thought it was a bit advanced. It really tightened in the glass and showed some freshly grated ginger notes and crisp cherry fruit. It had good line in the mouth and decent cut to the finish.

  • Succuent & robust nose, heavy and huge… pleasant on the palate, a touch stemmy and overly fruit-laden but leans towards the obtuse side of things as opposed to the light/intense/soaring side which I generally prefer.

  • Been luck enough to have had this wine a few times from release and it continues to shine. The nose is so pretty and engaging with all sorts of etheal floral tones. It has some pomegranate, cherry and raspberry fruits and a hint of earth. It is fine and lacy in the mouth but is a wine of great detail and authority. It builds and then fans out but remains light as a feather throughout.

    2006 DRC's, 2/20/2009 94 points

    (Romanee St. Vivant) The 2006 DRC Romanee St. Vivant had a bright nose and lots of cloves to go with its cinnamon, along with nutmeg; it was a veritable spice cabinet. There was high pitch to its spice, and a little baked Grandma goodness. The palate was the roundest and most balanced; in fact, the balance was exquisite, yet there was still stuffing. There was a leathery finish with a peacock’s tail, very coating. There were pure red fruits and a sturdy finish, and it stayed agile in the glass.
