DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault Blochet 1999 750mL

"The 1999 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Duvault-Blochet, the debut release in the modern era, was beginning to show some signs of bricking on the rim. The bouquet is a treat: decayed red berry fruit, sage and peppermint, just a soupcon of wild fennel all at the liminal point as primary tips into secondary aromas. The palate is soft and mellow on the entry with a subtle meaty/dried blood quality, fine tannin and well judged acidity that keeps this linear and focused. There is just a pinch of spice on the finish that strangely brought to mind more Chambolle than Vosne-Romanee, not that I am complaining. Tasted at the 1999 DRC dinner. Drink between 2020-2040."
