Romanée Conti 2015
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
Average age of vines, 56 years. 22.65 hl/ha made. In 2018, the nose is firmer and 'tighter' than La Tâche, with the depth of the old vines. Then it opens out and calls you in with a mysterious smokiness. Heathery richness on the palate, so ripe and succulent, with primary raspberry flavours and such pure overall fruit. This is a wine that caresses - a beautiful, elegant gemstone in Burgundy's crown. As always, power camouflaged by beauty - a volcano waiting to erupt. This will number amongst the greats.
