Steven Tanzers International Wine Cellar ReviewGood dark red. Deeply pitched aromas of cassis, earth and truffle ("underground aromas while the Romanee-Saint-Vivant is more ethereal," says Villaine). Fat and broad in the mouth, with a strong earth-and-rocks character. Doesn't show quite the lift of the RSV but this is even sweeter. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. I suspect I'm catching this in an awkward stage.
Deep red. Lovely high-pitched aromas and flavors of raspberry, minerals, flowers and spices; this could go into a time capsule. Then juicy, pure and almost magically light on its feet, with terrific verve and spicy lift. With air, a note of smoky underbrush emerged, but in comparison to this sappy wine the 2005 is distinctly more sauvage. Finishes with sweet but firm tannins and outstanding purity and persistence.
The 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. This is a T.R. sort of wine - you just don't feel the stick.
Deep ruby. A penetrating nose of moderately high-toned spicy black fruit trimmed in violets and floral notes that lead to supple but intense flavors that are rich and refined with excellent finishing energy and more refinement than I usually find her... Burghound. A Pinot Noir wine from Burgundy in France. 2004 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Echezeaux 750ml
Medium red. Rather exotic aromas of liqueur-like red fruits, spices, leather and underbrush. Silky, seductive and a bit decadent in its early sex appeal, but with its lively acids and apparent oak tannins this has a slight dry edge. Firmed up with air and gained in freshness.
Once again, Grands Echézeaux was a tangible step up, in fact the more I believe that it has more breeding than Richebourg or Romanée-Saint-Vivant. Less fruit-driven than I expected, it had a beguiling earthy nose; protean and elegant on the palate. With yields and production that make you understand exactly why Aubert was sceptical whether a 2003 tasting would take place at all last year, it is a tour de force and will undoubtedly become a much sought-after wine in years to come.
Good full red. Pretty, nuanced aromas of red fruits, flowers and tobacco. Wonderfully tactile and juicy, with terrific acid cut giving grip to the sappy red berry and saline flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely lingering perfume. This struck me as exuberant and expansive for a grand cru from this year - and that's hardly a complaint. A big success for this cuvée.
The Domaine's holding covers 5.28 hectares in one single block. This formerlybelonged to the Marey-Monge family but was farmed and made by the Domaine from1966 and purchased by them in 1988. It is a beautifully refined, stylish wine,perhaps having more in common with La RomanÃ©e Conti itself than the more ruggedRichebourg.
