Last Tasted 6/92||Given the fact that the DRC bottled their wines barrel by barrel until the mid-eighties, tasting notes of older bottles can be particularly misleading because of the obvious bottle variation. This bottling, from an outstanding red burgundy vintage, offers a barnyard, cow manure-sort of aroma intermingled with sweet fruit in the background. In the mouth, the wine exhibits full body and significant tannin, as well as extremely high acidity. The result is a wine with plenty of depth, but the high acidity and hard tannins give it a lean, austere impression that is atypical for a DRC wine. Wine Advocate.December, 1992
