Echézeaux 1999

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru

Excellent level, very slight signs of old seepage, straw wrapped; Bon niveau, très légers signes d'écoulement anciens, emballé avec de la paille

31hl/hectare were produced this year. Incredible scented nose. Heather and violets. Gloriously 'meaty' taste. Smoky too. Such a fine texture and quite different from Faiveley's Echézeaux of the same year, which is less open. Mineral finish. Serena Sutcliffe, MW WA 92


1 methuselah - 6 litres (owc)
