DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI - ROMANEE SAINT VIVIANT - 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 deft but not invisible application of wood sets off the airy, cool and strikingly elegant nose that is composed by notes of both red and dark currant, a wide range of floral and spice elements as well as Asian-style tea scents. The refined and caressing middle weight flavors possess a sleek and cool mouth feel while retaining good definition on the firm but well-balanced finish that exhibits a bit less finesse than usual even if it is still quite fine. 92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound.
100% Pinot Noir.
