2014 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Echézeaux Grand Cru
Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a precise bouquet, perhaps not quite as generous as I have found other, riper vintages at this stage, with a mixture of red and black fruit as well as a hint of violet and Earl Grey tea. The palate is medium-bodied with quite rigid tannin on the entry. This is a cool, more reserved Echézeaux than I was expecting, quite structured but with very fine precision on the finish.Drink Dates: 2018 - 2032Author: Neal MartinIssue: 222
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.
