The above lot consists of twenty-one methusalem. Each vineyard listed is represented in each of the three vintages 1988, 1989 and 1990.

These large format DRC bottles are rare enough in any vintage, but, representing three years of such supreme quality in combination, are unique:
1988, the most successful vintage of the decade; 1989, superb, a year when the vineyards of Burgundy basqued in the glorious summer that all of France enjoyed; 1990, undoubtedly the best balanced, superbly constructed of all recent Burgundy vintages, achieving at the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti the greatest heights. A priceless collection! MB
