Aficionados of the wines of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti always consider the wines need many years to truly reveal their intricacies and nuances. But finding aged DRCs is not an easy task.
With our program of DRC Dinners featuring the last ten vintages complete, it is time to take a look at a selection of DRC wines with a little more age.
Our latest Cellar Dinner starts at 1966 and ends at 1990. It will include a bracket of 1985s, followed by an interesting selection of wines dating back to 1966.
The DRC wine list:
1985 Grands Echezeaux
1985 La Tache
1988 La Tache
1983 Grands Echezeaux
1973 La Tache
It is a rare opportunity to taste 10 old vintages from DRC.
As usual we will start with champagne, follow this with a bracket of White Burgundy, then the main event - the old DRCs, spread over two brackets. There will be a maximum of 12 persons (including myself) to ensure everyone receives a good glass of each wine.
