Romanée Conti 1999
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
Mathusalem # 000008, very slightly scuffed label, wax capsule slightly damaged and cracked at top to reveal cork partially on top, purchased from Sotheby’s Hong Kong on 5 October 2012, “The Classic Cellar From A Great American Collector 10”
La Tâche may have the grandeur and the flamboyance in this vintage, but Romanée-Conti has the balance, the breed and the endless finish. DRC really did attain perfection this year, for which they can be justifiably proud, while we can be eternally grateful. It is the power and the nobility of bouquet and taste that really set these wines apart in 1999 and Romanée-Conti itself epitomises these qualities. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
