Wine Advocate | Rating: 90Last Tasted 10/91 Fully mature, and on the edge of losing some fruit, as well as fragilly balanced, this voluptuous, intensely perfumed, decadent wine is ideal for current drinking. Cellaring it any longer could be fraught with potential for disappointment.Author: Robert Parker
Burghound | Rating: 86This particular bottle seemed to have some storage wear and tear and may not have been especially well stored. An expressive but somewhat funky nose of heavy sous bois and spice hints merges into tiring medium weight flavors that still possess a bit of backend tannic structure and acceptable length. This isn't what it should be in my view though I have no other recent notes.Author: Allen Meadows
Domaine de la Romanée-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 grands crus Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Grands Échezeaux, Échezeaux, and Montrachet, of which both Romanée Conti and La Tâche are monopoles.
Co-proprietor Aubert de Villaine has farmed the vineyards organically since 1986 and has 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 clearly reflect a sense of place and have the ability to age while increasing in both character and value.
