Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
92

Tasting note: Extremely rich and ripe with explosive aromas of Vosne spice, earth and only a touch of secondary nuance followed by big, indeed even robust flavors that show good muscle but no rusticity and while this displays only a bit of the classic RSV velvet, this character will undoubtedly become more pronounced with age as there is plenty of mid-palate density. Quite long and still very much of a baby, the '90 RSV is most promising. I would try again in 2010 but this will live for 30 years, perhaps longer. Multiple and consistent notes.

An expressive and notably ripe nose features complex and well-layered aromas of Vosne spice, earth and moderate secondary nuance is followed by big and relatively powerful medium-bodied robust flavors that show good muscle but no rusticity on the mouth coating and lingering finish that exhibits just a hint of dryness. While this presently displays only a bit of the classic RSV velvet, I would expect this character to become more pronounced with age. Note that while I don't believe there is much, if any, remaining upside development potential, this should be an exceptionally long-lived vintage for this wine. Multiple and consistent notes.
