(DRC Montrachet) The 1979 DRC Montrachet made us quickly forget about the previous two wines. It was a staggering example of great white Burgundy. The nose was so musky and nutty but deep, very deep, super sexy juice. There were exotic fruits abounding in the nose, hinting at guava without the sweetness, along with orange and other tropical impressions. Icicles also came to mind in its piercing and riveting nose. The palate was incredibly rich with insane depth. There were decadent coffee flavors and perfect sweetness; the marriage of musk and caramel was made in heaven, and the lobster risotto that followed took it up a notch. Amazing wine (98).
(DRC Montrachet) had a noticeably dark color but didn’t seem to be oxidized at first. It was rich, meaty, long and intense with lots of caramel, baked nuts and a rich, great mouthfeel. Its long acidity knocked the ’82 out, and it was fat, round and tropical. Very exotic, some felt it was a touch affected, and I suppose with that color it was, but I still enjoyed it a lot
