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.

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.

The 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... let's 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.

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.

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 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. Aromas of red cherry and Oriental spices, with a liqueur-like aspect. Sweet, aromatic and penetrating, with lovely acidity giving shape and life to the silky, slowly mounting flavors. In a distinctly feminine style, and more expressive in the mouth today than the Grands-Echezeaux. A supple, suave, sappy wine with a light touch. Finishes long, with dusty tannins.
