WA94: Tasted blind at Harry Gill’s annual lunch. The RSV ’98 has a rounded, sensuous nose with aromas of mulberry, raspberry, a touch of leather, mint and dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, quite robust with firm, what you might describe as “big-boned” tannins more reminiscent of a gutsy Chambolle. Nonetheless, it exhibits superb concentration and great weight in the mouth, leading to a slightly meaty, Musigny-like finish that lacks the finesse of Romanee-St.-Vivant. As DRC’s go, one might describe this is a ‘burly’ RSV, but still utterly enjoyable. Drink now-2020. Tasted February 2010. (NM)   (7/2010)

BH91: I have noticed that some bottles of the '98 DRCs have slightly cloudy appearances and reduced aromas. This most recent bottle though possessed a beautifully spicy nose of wonderfully complex and now fully mature secondary fruit aromas. The medium full, rich and equally spicy flavors are shaped by now relatively pliant tannins on the delicious, balanced and lingering finish. Multiple and mostly consistent notes though I have had a few bottles where the reduction was sufficiently pronounced to impair the overall drinking experience.   (4/2015)
