(DRC Richebourg Vieux Cepages) The first flight of red wines set a high bar for the evening. It was a legendary flight of wines that would be near impossible to recreate. The first wine screamed ‘incredible’ at first whiff. It was full of menthol, rose, blood, iron and ‘peaty’ per Wendy. There was big volume in the nose, and everyone was rocking out to it accordingly. There was lots of earth, ‘chickory’ as Jim put it, as well as divine garden aromas. The palate was equally extraordinary, long like winter nights in Alaska. There was huge acidity to this incredibly rare 1945 DRC Richebourg Vieux Cepages, the last vintage of this mythical wine, made from one row of vines from a portion of the vineyard. I have had this wine only twice (this being my first ’45), and both bottles have been some of the best bottles of my life, and both bottles came from Big Boy. Merci beaucoup (97+).
