Double magnum number 00005. Our host had bought this extraordinary large format of this classic straight from the domaine expressly for this event, on condition that it was definitely served at the event and the empty bottle and cork returned to Vosne, such is the new, strict regime at Dom de la Romanée-Conti in their efforts to minimise the risk of counterfeit bottles. Of course it was an amazing treat to be able to even sip this wine but I was quite surprised by how drinkable it was already.Bright greenish gold with enormous weight (though slightly more slimline than the white Hermitage served with it). A lightly vegetal note and I found that this stunning classic didn't hold up in the glass quite as well as the Chapoutier, Cuvée de l'Orée 2006.
