Browning edges to a still ruby core. This is a wine that I've had the privilege of trying many times over the years and it is now in a state of graceful decline. The nose is now completely composed of secondary aromas emphasizing caramel and lots of sous bois followed by flavors that are rich and nicely defined but thinning a touch relative to even 5 years ago. I very much like this wine as I find it beautifully detailed and satisfying in its own way but it's time to drink up. The bottle reviewed here also displayed a hint of finishing astringency but the tannins are quite refined.

About This Producer


Domaine de la Romanee Conti (DRC) is Burgundy's most famous estate, producing all grand cru wines from 25 hectares of vines. The wines are made in extremely limited quantities and generate some of the highest prices on the market. DRC produces the grand crus Romanee Conti, La Tache, Richebourg, Romanee Saint Vivant, Grands Echezeaux, Echezeaux and Montrachet, of which both Romanee Conti and La Tache are monopoles.

Aubert de Villiane has farmed the vineyards organically since 1986 and adhered to traditional, natural winemaking practices. Only natural yeasts are used and aging is done in 100% new oak. The wines are characterized by finesse, balance and refinement. They directly reflect their sense of place and have the ability to age while increasing in both character and value.
