Domaine de la Romanée-Conti

Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru

Excellent levels and appearance, straw wrapped, case banded until inspection; Excellents niveaux et apparence, emballées avec de la paille, caisse cerclée d'origine jusqu'à l'inspection

Beautiful, noble, sweet violets and raspberry nose. Damp earth and a touch of cinnamon. Great, huge, "woody" flavour. In full, rosy bloom. Very black fruit aftertaste. Cassis and blackberries. Big tannic structure. Then, from magnum in 2009. Deep, but very bright, crimson colour. The sheer breadth and dimension of the bouquet is (almost) indescribable. Raspberries, roses, cassis and redcurrants. Heady. Dramatic, violetty, sweet taste. So intense and with such a concentrated core to it. Amazing blackcurrant finish. Flawless. A liqueur-like texture. Combines being ethereal with being rich. Much later, in the almost empty glass, Cognac/vanilla/eau de vie! Stupendous. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
