(07-2006) First tasted after bottling at Corney in Feb-00, when I thought it as profound as Romanee-Conti, though the finish was lacking just a little length. But a glorious bottle six years later lunching at "Aubergine" in London. Garnet core with deep brick rim. The nose is closed at first, powerful yet coiled up in the glass. Reluctantly scents of black cherries, minerals and iodine emerge. The palate is again backward, quite tannic with perfectly poised acidity. "Pointed" at first, but mellowing out in the glass to reveal exquisite balance and harmony. Again, black cherries, blueberry and a faint tinny note. Just builds and builds in the glass, but then clams up on the finish. Unlike the Echezeaux 1997 from the domaine, this has a long road ahead. Leave another 5-8 years. (1,272 cases produced) Tasted July 2006.

(06-2001) Beautiful ripe fruit and elegant structure in this gorgeous Pinot Noir. Full-bodied, with sweet tannins and refined flavors of wild raspberries, cherries and cassis. Tannins clamp down on the finish.

(10-2001) Sweet, slightlly singed, raisiny nose which opened up beautifully, sweet, honeyed; crisp fruit, lightish in style but well endowed with tannin and acidity.

Domaine de la Romanée Conti

Acquired by the Prince de Conti in 1760, the 1.85 ha vineyard produces little more than 6,000 bottles of mythical and exceptional wine per yearl. After the French Revolution, the area was declared a national asset, Romanée Conti counted many owners, including family-Duvault Blochet, who acquired several other parcels, including La Tâche, Richebourg and Echézeaux. Today, every bottle of Romanée Conti is signed by both Aubert de Villaine and Henry-Frederic Roch. Romanee Conti was the last vineyard in Burgundy to resist phylloxera, but during the second world war, the lack of carbon disulphide led to its destruction in 1945. For five years, from 1946 to 1951, no vintage was produced. The conditions of vinification and aging (maximum maturity of the fruit, very high selectivity, maximum precautions at every stage, breeding new wood) can produce an exceptional wine. Thus, magnificent complex aromas evoking rose, violet, spices, truffles and leather are in this sumptuous wine. All Domain Romanee Conti is implemented to produce only wines to keep. Biodynamics has taken over the last ten years a different share under the new leadership of Henry Frédéric-Roch, one of two co-managers of Domaine Romanee Conti with Aubert de Villaine. The owner of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, one of the most famous vineyards in the world, has been elected Decanter Man of The Year 2010 by the eponymous magazine. Aubert de Villaine is the largest producer of wines from Burgundy to receive this award since its inception. Modest, it seems that he also refused at first to be rewarded, before changing his mind to finally accept. Co-owner of the domain family of Romanée-Conti with the Leroy family, Aubert de Villaine long hesitated before walking in the footsteps of his father. After studying law and literature, he flew to New York and began his career as an importerof wines from Burgundy. Fascinated by wine, he also devoted himself to journalism and has interviewed, among others, Robert Mondavi 1966. During this period his father called him  to his side. He started as an apprentice to the field. Since then, he has consistently put his dedication, passion and service requirement of Romanée-Conti, which continues to produce the greatest red wines in the world. .
