We drank the 91 DRC RSV and 1991 Leroy RSV side by side. The Leroy was the clear winner, but these are both smoking bottles from what for me is an outstanding burgundy vintage. Either of these would be in WOTN category for most dinners. A nice treat to enjoy them together.
Popped, poured, and drank over about 45 minutes. Some nice fruit and spice right upon opening. Crushed red and black berry fruit with notes of clove and anise and moderate earthy tones. After 15 minutes or so, the earthy elements began to take over and the fruit started to dry out and fade. The pretty spice notes stayed around though.
This bottle took a very long time to show is stuff. However, it did come around and the nose alone took me away! 91 burgs when they hit are special and this was no exception. The nose had a deep tarnished leather and load black cherry aroma to it, Leroy spice was very subtle. At the end, the wine had considerable length. Still has plenty of life.

(Romanee St. Vivant Leroy) The last wine of the flight was the only one that Ed liked. It had a complex, chocolaty nose with nice earth and game aromas and flavors. There was a long, meaty finish and a garden of complexity
