As it usually is relative to the Echézeaux, the restrained nose is distinctly more reserved but classier with a wonderfully intense and layered nose that is more floral still while offering up a variety of spice notes, including anise, clove and soy that can also be found on the pure and sleekly muscled flavors that possess real drive, indeed this does a slow but sure build from the mid-palate on through the explosive finish. This is an interesting wine in that the natural robustness of a fine GE is present but the natural elegance of the vintage tames it somewhat and one could quite accurately describe the '06 GE as robustly elegant yet distinctly understated and not be wrong. Despite the elegance, this will need plenty of cellar time.

Comme c'est généralement par rapport à la Echézeaux, le nez retenue est nettement plus réservé mais chic avec un nez merveilleusement intense et en couches qui est plus floral toujours tout en offrant une variété de notes d'épices, y compris anis, clou de girofle et de soja que l'on retrouve aussi sur le pur et sleekly musclé saveurs qui possèdent lecteur réel, en effet cela fait une lente mais sûre construire à partir de la mi-palais à travers la finition explosive. C'est un vin intéressant en ce que la robustesse naturelle d'une amende GE est présent mais l'élégance naturelle du millésime apprivoise un peu et l'on pourrait décrire assez précisément le '06 GE aussi énergiquement élégant et sobre et distinctement être pas tort. Malgré l'élégance, cette aura besoin de beaucoup de temps de la cave.

Very harmonious, with finesse and refinement as the floral and spice notes unfold on the silky texture to a long aftertaste.

Romanée Conti (Domaine)

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. .
