Briary, yet rosy nose. Plummy overtones. Inky too. The tannin and structure made it a keeper, but it can now be drunk with real pleasure. Maybe it has a touch of 1995 to it. SS.

The Domaine, as it is known, is iconic. Much more important, it also produces the most extraordinary wines in Burgundy - and it has been doing so for a long time. The generations responsible for the Domaine change, but the terroir remains. And these are very special vineyard parcels indeed, married to meticulous care and philosophy leading to low yields and healthy, ripe grapes, at whatever cost. From the 1990s, vineyard policy has been organic, with co-owner Aubert de Villaine monitoring everything with his usual attention to detail. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti wines evolve and develop dimensions in a way that resembles a mosaic - points of bouquet and flavour making up a harmonious whole that becomes more beautiful as it unfolds in the glass. Yes, these are hedonistic wines and yes, they are not like any other. The trick is in capturing what these remarkable plots of vines can give and letting them express themselves through minimum intervention and enlightened nurturing. SS.
4.67 ha (11.39 acres), average production: 1340 cases, average age of vines 31 years

The Domaine owns one-seventh of this vineyard. The rock structure that underpins Echezeaux is immensely complicated, with lower Bathonian and upper Bajocian limestones in constant interplay. The vineyard is situated very high for a Grand Cru, but the soil has good pebbles and is deep enough to produce outstanding wines. SS.
