(DRC Grands Echezeaux) The first red wine that we had was a 1935 DRC Grands Echezeaux. You speaka my language, Pekka. Its nose was mature and tangy, ‘Burgish’ I wrote. There were lots of vitamins and rosy fruit, and while there was a touch of maderization to the nose, it was more mesquite than maderized. The mid-palate was thin, and flavors of wood, tobasco and game were noticeable first, but the wine kept improving in the glass. It got very exotic with lime, citrus and orange rind joining the party. SuperSomm added, ‘mushroom and earth’ (94).
