Is 2017 young to drink DRC? Sure. But 2014 was corked, so 2017 to the rescue! 2017 is still insanely expressive and welcoming even at this stage with its expansive and velvety texture, elite depth and riveting energy and concentration. It has impeccable balance and an ultra persistent finish, surely to be a star as it further develops and gains complexity. This is my 3rd time having 2017 DRC, and all have been pretty darn accessible. Even La Tâche. There’s no wrong time to drink DRC 💫
