Montrachet 1996

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Côte de Beaune, Grand Cru

Good levels, excellent appearance, sequential bottle numbers, standard French back label, straw wrapped, case banded until inspection 

Such a lemony, spicy nose - the oak is still there. Really nutty taste, which matched the nutty, spicy Ornellaia olive oil in the dish that accompanied the wine! Glorious gingery finish. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
