DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI - ECHEZEAUX - 2014
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, often abbreviated to DRC, is an
estate in Burgundy, France that produces white and red wine. It is widely
considered among the world's greatest wine producers, and DRC bottles are among
the world's most expensive. It takes its name from the domaine's most famous
vineyard, Romanee-Conti Which lies on brown limestone soils 60 cm deep with a
major clay component.
A wonderfully complex nose features a broad array of spice elements with those of plum, violet, sandalwood and Asian-style tea that are also trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is good punch to the refined, cool and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess better concentration on the balanced, persistent and youthfully austere finale where the only nit is a very subtle hint of warmth. Of all the wines in the Domaine's portfolio, in my view the Echezeaux is the most improved over the last 10 years and it shows as the 2014 is bigger and more powerful than usual. 94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound.
100% Pinot Noir.
