(DRC Montrachet) My magnum of 1993 DRC Montrachet was next, whose nose was super smoky, gamy and zippy with great aromatics of yeast, fruit and flowers. Its flavors were yeasty and tasty with great structure. This ’93 was chunky, oily and long, still with finesse on its finish. It was a great showing for a 1993 white, the vintage where everyone knows the reds now, but that everyone who knows should know the whites. It might be tough to find a more pleasurable vintage to enjoy at the moment from the decade, with the exception of 1990.
(DRC Montrachet) The 1983 DRC Montrachet was out of magnum and had more ‘rot’ in its nose, similar to the Sauzet with its sweeter nature, but it possessed more alley, bread and yeast. Wilder than the Sauzet, it was extremely bready and had this ocean air quality, complete with the langoustine. The second I wrote down ‘langoustine,’ Big Boy came up at the other end of the table with ‘briny lobster.’ It is always nice to see a pupil blossoming lol. The palate was great; buttery, round, polished and smooth yet full of flavors and delicious. It was many people’s favorite white of the night
