that ol' #DRC Asian spice magic ✨ leaps from the glass, along with black fruit and smoke and earth. Gloriously complex and silky. With Gabriel Kreuther’s blissful, Alsace-inspired cured snapper. This, pardner, is gastronomic pulchritude. 🤠 #Burgundy

I tasted this #1985 #grandsechezeaux from #drc last year at this time. There has been some nice development. It's heavily perfumed with good intensity and concentration. The palate has some very nice meat and sweet fruit qualities. This will keep developing. #burgundy #vosneromanee #cotedenuits #pinotnoir #domainedelaromaneeconti #ctbucklinwine

Very spicy nose. Good fruit but very earthy. Still sexy.

Incense and intensely perfumed. Sandalwood smoke. White pepper, umami. Rose petal. Ethereal.

Great nose (great wine), lots of acid, a bit disjointed in the mouth, but incredible power.
