User Reviews for Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): A very fresh, spicy, mature and elegant nose that becomes distinctly floral with 20 minutes of air, revealing soft notes of dried flowers, earth and a hint of game where the latter two elements also suffuse the medium weight and lilting flavors that are not especially powerful but beautifully focused and detailed on the lingering, sappy and utterly beguiling finish. This is a lovely older burg and very much cut from the cloth of the '79 vintage where its strength is the harmony and purity of expression and about the only (very) minor nit is a touch of backend warmth but otherwise, this is a classic effort. In a word, beautiful. Drink: Now. (Mar 2010)
