Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) Romanée-St. Vivant Pinot Noir 1990

The DRC's Romanee St.-Vivant is a tough wine to evaluate. I found the 1990 to have a pervasive earthy, cinnamon, clove, sweet fruit-scented nose intermingled with scents of spicy new oak. Although closed, the wine exhibits great depth, medium to full body, and copious quantities of hard tannins in the long, structured, austere finish. It requires a patient buyer. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2015. Robert Parker

1990. So young but so promising. Floral, spicy rich and silky. Long.

Blind tasting. Think it was a 90.

Niceee. After the flight of Rousseau we did a flight of these. Little richer, sweeter, plumper sort of stuff. Made sense. At the time at least? Good amount of dusty dirty barnyardy funk. Tart cherry. Spicy like walking by the Royal Bangladesh.

This was brooding and took some time to fire up. When it did it was quite dense and chewy with a soy, plum and exotic spice profile. Very concentrated with exceptional length but not as much lift as the '04. But damn good. My #3 of the night and thank you to THE @Martin G Rivard for his amazing generosity.

This wine is owed an apology. The wine staff did not give this wine nearly enough air. And so, I let mine sit in the glass for an extra hour, and presto! Romanee St. Vibrant the way it should be: sexy, spicy nose...elegant, balanced, almost zen palate, with near perfect balance. A wonderful wine.

1990 DRC Romanee St. Vivant Burgundy. Drank this alongside the 1990 Richebourg at private room Melisse dinner. This wine is more fickle, less assertive, and playful- hard to pin down. So interesting and delicious, but overshadowed by the Richebourg.
