Wine Advocate ReviewRated 98-99The 2005 La Tache epitomizes the unique mysteries of Pinot (not to mention the character of a great site), with its aromas of game, musk, iris, star anise, vanilla, allspice, and naturally also an abundance of sweet, ripe, implosively tiny-berried fruit. Imagine a black Riesling. On the palate, a vivid freshness of fruit, pungency of spice and flowers, and melting away of what in point of analytical fact are abundant tannins, all engender an almost white wine dynamic of fruit-mineral call-and-response and clear, incisive penetration of flavors to every recess of the mouth.

The 2005 Richebourg suggests lightly cooked cherry, lilies, and vanilla-chocolate pot de creme, coming onto the palate with a gentle wave of creamy fruit, almost shockingly open-knit and youthfully generous. Low-toned richness of salted beef broth an... Robert Parker. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2005 Romanee Conti, Domaine de la Richebourg Grand Cru 750ml

Unparalleled complexity on the nose. Berries and briar patch and smoke transforming into dried thyme. Cherry on the palate also salty minerals. Astounding length and potential to age.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 94-95The 2005 Echezeaux delivers ravishingly sweet, high-toned aromas of black raspberry, maraschino, marzipan, marmalade and iodine. It saturates the palate with sweet, ripe fruit and inner-mouth perfume, while introducing layers of fresh meat and shrimp-shell minerality. The texture is amazingly creamy and polished, and the long, refined finish adds an alluring hint of mocha. Superb saturation of ultra-ripe fruit but with freshness; remarkable concentration yet elegance, lift, indeed near weightlessness: this is 2005 at its best. The temptation to drink this in its early years will, I suspect, be irresistible ... lets hope so anyway. It would be a shame for this beauty to be locked away as a collectible, even if it is capable of long-aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

Powerful nose with a light touch of animal notes. In the mouth, the attack is supple, then the wine becomes firmer, but after aeration for ten to fifteen minutes, the pleasant, round character of Échézeaux expresses itself.
