Z wczorajszego czatu z Josephem di Blasi (fotka ze strony Vinnoseur.com):

04/28/2010 - 17:38 sstar: If we are talking about 
Pinots have you tasted any DRC wines? Or some other 
Pinot that stayed in your memory for whatever reasons?

04/28/2010 - 17:39 diblasi: Good question

04/28/2010 - 17:39 diblasi: I had my first experience 
                   with DRC just a few months ago

04/28/2010 - 17:39 diblasi: a 1996 chezeaux

04/28/2010 - 17:40 diblasi: a massive wine

04/28/2010 - 17:40 diblasi: and I am not sure I will 
             ever get the chance to taste DRC again ;-)

04/28/2010 - 17:40 diblasi: and it was one sip

04/28/2010 - 17:41 sstar: Was it special?

04/28/2010 - 17:41 diblasi: well, here is what I remember:

04/28/2010 - 17:41 sstar: Or as any other good massive Pinot?

04/28/2010 - 17:42 diblasi: It seemed very very very massive 
                   not like an Pinot I have had before

04/28/2010 - 17:42 diblasi: It seemed to need perhaps 30 years 
                   just to make it approachable

04/28/2010 - 17:42 diblasi: and, I don't remember finding many 
                   Pinot-like aromas

04/28/2010 - 17:42 sstar: But it was a very special vintage.. 
                   for a long haul ;-)

04/28/2010 - 17:42 diblasi: extremely

04/28/2010 - 17:42 sstar: Oak was prominent?

04/28/2010 - 17:43 diblasi: I am sensitive to oak, so prominent 
                   for me, but not over the top...

04/28/2010 - 17:43 diblasi: it was quite well-balanced in that 
sense

04/28/2010 - 17:44 sstar: We tried few DRC
                   and were mainly dissapointed, although 
                   they were very tasty... good fruit, well 
                   balanced... and nothing special :-(

04/28/2010 - 17:45 diblasi: This is what I remembered as well.. 
                   thinking that it wasn't worth the money

04/28/2010 - 17:45 sstar: But they were mainly from the lesser 
                   2006 vintage.

04/28/2010 - 17:45 sstar: How many points in any scale would 
                   you give to this DRC?

04/28/2010 - 17:45 diblasi: 2006

04/28/2010 - 17:45 diblasi: yes. the more classic, cool 206

04/28/2010 - 17:45 diblasi: Um..points?

04/28/2010 - 17:45 sstar: :-)

04/28/2010 - 17:46 diblasi: Points are difficult for me

04/28/2010 - 17:46 sstar: We have 3-8 scale in Sstarwines, 
                   have a try...

04/28/2010 - 17:46 diblasi: 3-8... 3 being really bad and 8 
                   being "oh my god!"??

04/28/2010 - 17:46 diblasi: hummm

04/28/2010 - 17:47 sstar: 3 faulty, 4 bad... 5 good, 8 oh my 
                   and her god ;-)

04/28/2010 - 17:47 diblasi: as I exhale ;-)

04/28/2010 - 17:47 diblasi: I would say that when I tasted it, 
                   it was a 5.5

04/28/2010 - 17:47 sstar: :-)

04/28/2010 - 17:47 diblasi: good, but not fantastic

04/28/2010 - 17:48 diblasi: could have been the age, so don't 
                   get upset people ;-)

SSTAR! This was definitely an interesting chat and topic. I just have to remind that I have had only the one experience to taste DRC and would be thrilled to have another opportunity to taste DRC. This being said, it is an expensive wine, a wine that needs time in the cellar to express itself perhaps, and there are so many other wines that I enjoy for a fraction of the cost of DRC - wines that bring me immediate satisfaction without the need for cellaring. cheers, @Altona Vinbar, Bergen
