Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: 41

This is the most backward wine in the range at present with extremely reticent aromas of ultra elegant and refined red berry fruit, spice and floral notes plus earth and underbrush hints that complement perfectly the detailed, intense and palate etching middle weight flavors that for all the reserve of the nose, explode into a gorgeously pure and driving finish of truly stunning length that seems to have boundless energy. The underlying sense of proportion and perfect balance very much confers a Zen-like character to the '08 Roman�©e-Conti. A potentially great vintage for this most storied of wines but plenty of patience will be required.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 155

Good medium red. Soil-driven perfume of smoky red fruits, spices and underbrush; showed darker fruits as it opened in the glass. Fuller and more voluminous than La Tache but less obviously high-pitched, sweet and fruity today--less primary in character. But this wine of meditation is ultimately more elegant and laid-back. Conveys an extraordinary impression of plushness without weight. Finishes very long and saline, with slowly building, palate-saturating persistence.

Pale pinky cherry red, pretty light at the rim. Bewitchingly sweet yet fresh red fruit – intensely aromatic and inviting. Such richness and depth without the slightest heaviness. Tongue-tingling fruit; lively, fresh and generous. Spicy on the back palate but the spice is enveloped by the fruit. But this is no fruit bomb – tannins are taut and upright, almost hidden but giving shape to the fruit. Long, clear, ringing finish. (JH)

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 189

The 2008 Romanee-Conti offers an uncanny amalgam of viscosity and velvety texture with fresh fruit vivacity, buoyancy, and ethereal florality. 'I think this is the loveliest Romanee-Conti we have made in many years,â?� remarks de Villaine. It is what it is, he suggests, 'for me, the wine with a capital 'W,' whereas it's hard to pull-out the individual parts.â?� Granted, but it's my professional duty to try. Black currant and rhubarb; saline meat stock; perfume of peony, iris, and rose; myriad spices; and a crystalline sense of shimmering mineral elements such as one more usually associates with a great white wine are all part of the allure to a kaleidoscopically complex, youthfully harmonious wine that soars and floats for a finale. This will be savored ' and much talked-about ' for several decades.
