ROMANEE CONTI 2015 DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI
Romanée Conti 2015 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
Côte de Nuits, Grand Cru
Case banded prior to inspection, OWC is stained on top and slightly damaged on side branded 'Romanée Conti'.
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.
