    March 11, 2020 - Advanced with metallic notes on the palate. I've had better bottles but this has generally disappointed by a wide margin vs the GE in this vintage.

    January 22, 2020 - Echezeaux Extravaganza: Henri Jayer and DRC 1976-2007 (La Grenouille, New York): Lovely young and fruity wine at age 25. Elegant and floral. Not quite as complex as some of the top vintages but drinking magnificently today.

    July 23, 2019 - Oxidized. Perfect storage since I have owned foR past 7 years. Prior to that, obvious storage issues.

    August 17, 2018 - [Magnum] On the nose this is initially over the hill with heavy teas and dark spice. Fruit is badly browning. Think old Barolo. The nose isn’t that bad, some roses, tar, and pine. Improving considerably wth air. Still no classically bombastic DRC black cherry and stems remaining. Palate is also Italian with high acid and dry leathery fruit. Have had some ‘69s recently that were far fresher and stronger than this. Damp cigar ash in a less pleasant way. Best off a short, fresh pour. From a very bad looking bottle, lower fill and some serious corrosion, although the colour is great. Still drinkable, but a disappointment, especially in the Magnum.

    March 3, 2018 - La Paulée de San Francisco - Gala Dinner (The Fairmont - San Francisco CA): Bottle with near perfect provenance and fill. Floral nose with rich, mature red fruit and so much sweet spice. Fresh and dried cherries with rich textures, lots of power and weight, great length. Possibly the best bottle of DRC Echezeaux from any vintage I can ever recall.
