2001 Vosne-Romanée Grand Cru Dinner (Imperial Treasure Teochew, Takashimaya): So, finally to the Holy Grail. This was perhaps the most subtle and understated, perhaps even reserved, of all the wines on the night – one that demanded time and attention to appreciate. Yet coming at the end of a few tremendous flights of the very best Vosne-Romanee can offer, it was clearly Primi Inter Pares, the first amongst equals. It had deep yet subtle nose, not dazzling like the La Tache or seductive like the RSV, but quietly captivating, a perfectly integrated jewel of a bouquet with gentle notes of earth and toasted wood spice, sprigs of herbs and a little floral perfume, and then shades of dark cherries and berries. Lovely. It was the palate that truly took my breath away though. This was a wine so comfortable in its exquisite quality and its hallowed position at the apex of Burgundy that it had no need to trumpet its own graces. It was subtle, gentle, but insistent, showing layer after layer of glowingly pure red cherries and blueberries seasoned with fragrant spice and a deep, gentle earthiness that led into neverendingly long finish that knitted together deeply integrated acidity and a gentle bite of the most velvety tannins. It had a reservoir of depth and power, yet the words that kept coming to mind were “harmony” and “purity”. A profound wine combining the perfumed elegance of Romanée St. Vivant with the strength of Richebourg, the generosity of La Tâche with the spicy masculinity of Echezeaux, all effortlessly melded into a zen-like completeness – this is the synthesis of everything Vosne-Romanée is supposed to be; so long, so quietly compelling that I was still savouring its imprint on the palate a full 30 minutes after we left the dinner. What struck me most was how seamless the wine was, it had a wholeness and singularity that perhaps only a great Musigny of all the other wines in Burgundy can achieve, yet this was wed here to a beautiful, weightless transparency that I have yet to taste in any Musigny. I feel extremely privileged to have shared in this wine; it is an experience that will live for a long, long time in the memory. On the night, this seemed ageless, already drinking well, yet feeling as though it will age effortless for decades to come.

2001 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche

La Tâche Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/20/2015 - Paul S wrote: 96 points

2001 Vosne-Romanée Grand Cru Dinner (Imperial Treasure Teochew, Takashimaya): A rather rich, opulent expression of La Tâche, this was surprising given the context of the vintage and the genererally finer and more minerally than usual tones on the wines that came before, but boy was it ever good. It had a dazzling nose, wafting out of the glass in arresting tones of sweet blueberries and dried plums, fragrant spice and smoky mineral, rich earthy notes that brought to mind a forest after a spring shower, and then perfumed drifts of fresh cut flowers. Wow. One always expects a fantastic nose on a La Tâche, but even then, this was breathtaking. Like the nose, the first impression on the palate was one of weight and stuffing, with wonderfully deep draws of dark cherries and berries infused with warm spice and gentle earthy notes filling the mouth beautifully. Yet in true La Tâche fashion, this carried its weight effortlessly, with juicy acidity and beautifully silky tannins lending it a wonderful sense of purity and finesse. This was a crazy delicious wine, yet one that oozed class beneath its hedonistic surface. It probably suffered a little from being placed next to a truly superb bottle of 2001 Romanée-Conti, perhaps the only wine in a sterling line-up that could have knocked this down a peg. Even with all its airy elegance and precision, the La Tâche seemed almost like a weightlifter next to the RC’s supremely graceful gymnast of a palate. On its own though, absolutely superb and starting to drink very nicely indeed.

2001 Vosne-Romanée Grand Cru Dinner (Imperial Treasure Teochew, Takashimaya): This amazing wine was the last of three repeat bottles that we had also drank back in September 2014 during our 2001 Grand Cru dinner. Back then, it was easily the wine of the night from amongst a superb field, showing absolutely brilliantly. It seemed to have lost some of its virtuosity amidst the even stronger line-up this time round though, with some of the other wines, including the Arnoux RSV later on in this flight just shading it somewhat. That is not to take anything away from this bottle though – this was a great, great wine in its own right. As before, it had a just incredible nose, with sweet cherries and berries, swirls of boiled herb and bramble and wood spice, a sprinkle dried flowers, all tumbling out of the glass in a wonderful mélange of fragrant aromas. The palate seemed a little tighter, rather last openly giving and seductive than with the previous bottle, but it shared the same wonderful, juicy clarity in its glorious flavours of sweet dark cherries, haw flakes and orange peel, then wood spice and gentle notes of earth, all carried on a bed of soft, silky tannins and lovely acidity that still held the wine in a gentle grip as it lingered into a beautiful finish. There was such a lovely sense of finesse here, so much so that one barely felt the considerable depth and breadth of the wine as it caressed the palate. I said that this was the archetypal RSV the last time I tried it, and that remains the best way I can describe the wine. Beautiful, and with this bottle at least, it would have shown even better with a couple more years under its belt.

Burgundy dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): Pop and pour, the fruit seems a bit too ripe and no stem note. With air, this is become incredible delicious. Beautiful opulent nose displaying sweet red and black fruits, now noticeable stem which as nice complexity, sap, caramel, Vosne spice and strong presence of mineral. Excellent concentration, opulent sweet blackberry driven palate impression, bright acidity, nicely integrated tannins and seamless lovely finish. Displaying perfect balance and harmony. Very youthful but perfectly enjoyable. This improved with air where the 02 didn’t.

Pinot Noir more

Burgundy dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): This bottle is starting to browning at the rim. The nose starts with strong DRC stem note which need to a hint of green impression, sweet decadent red fruits, raspberry jam, flowers, a slight hint of soy and sweet Vosne spices. Medium concentration, lovely silky palate, mineral, ripe sweet red fruits, good acidity and finish. I initially liked it a lot but deducted a couple points towards to the end for not having vibrant energy. I wonder the stem inclusion was the right decision as the stem note is quite strong and a bit out of sync as the fruit concentration is not there. Further cellaring could help lessening the stem note but the wine seems to be close to the peak. If you enjoy the DRC stem note, you may enjoy this a bit more. DRC signature is quite strong and it is very enjoyable.

5/20/2015 - Paul S wrote: 96 points

2001 Vosne-Romanée Grand Cru Dinner (Imperial Treasure Teochew, Takashimaya): The first of a truly great triumvirate of Richebourgs, this just about blew my mind. It had every hallmark of a great DRC, starting with a lovely, super-complex nose, with whole cluster nuances of boiled herb and bramble accompanied by blush of dried flowers and sweet Vosne spice, a gentle earthiness and then deep aromas of dark cherries and sweet blueberries. Wonderful. The palate elicited a big “wow” on my notes. This was at weighty and velvety and pure, with a truly luxuriant feel in the way its wonderful flavours of dark cherries and blueberries with a gentle infusion of spice and dried flowers coated the mouth in a deep, velvety cloak. Pure luxury someone said. A deeply integrated reservoir of acidity kept it beautifully clean and defined in spite of all that velvety depth, all the way into a long minerally finish. Superb stuff – this was power wed to elegance, purity and finesse. Drinking beautifully now, this was another bottle that showed even better than 9 months ago.

Decanted 2 hours. Shows a bit of age in color. This was expressive out of the bottle but then shut for 2 hours. At 2.5 hours it shows well, but the tannins show up at hour 3. This is rich and deep, but balancedm with plenty of fruit, structure, and the promise of seconaries as it evolves. Maybe not worth the premium, but certainly should evolve into a special wine. A-/A?

I've had this a few more times and just love it. I'm going to call this the best 2004 red Burg I have had. Lovely complexity and while the 2004 green note is there, it only adds to the pleasure of this wine.

From magnum. Excellent bottle. Pure nose with various floral notes, red plum, cherry, light spice and dry leaves. Long finish. Some evolution over two hours of air time with an overall smoothness throughout. The best experience that I have had with this wine to-date.

gave this bottle more time than the last one - opened 3 hours ahead and let it breathe. Benefits great - very open and attractive. More on the red fruit side, earthy, bit of spice. Very consistent aromas from nose, body to follow-through. Fine. Long life ahead but seems very ready now.

nice bright colour, big ripe 2009 nose - lots of apricots and ripe fruit, then good cut of grapefruity, citrus acidity, long with good extract. this is more like a good Meursault than a humble HCdeN..! and I suspect it may still be on the young side and improve as the fruit and acidity soften together. 90+

1993 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

3/27/2015 - Paul S wrote: 94 points

Peter's 40th (Summer Pavilion, Ritz Carlton, Singapore): A solid wine, but it probably needs a few more years yet. It had spent an hour in the decanter by the time we got to it, but even that was not enough – the wine was still slowly opening up when we got to the end of the evening. The nose was very DRC, with whole cluster notes of tea and herb and wild brush alongside deeper aromas of dark cherries and berries, meat and mineral – all quite masculine. The palate was full and rich, with powerful, broad shouldered feel to its ripe black cherry and berry flavours wed to notes of meat and herb. Lots of depth and breadth here – quite the classic Richebourg in its masculine feel. In spite of that, this was actually very refined, with a lovely clarity and balance and a nice chewy structure of fine, powdery tannins lending the wine a classy sophistication in spite of its depth and muscle. A long, full, finish then filled the back palate with clear black fruited notes dusted with a bit of spice, herb and coffee. Beautiful stuff. 1993 DRCs have always been haunted by a rather poor reputation but, served blind, I thought this was a lovely example of how good 1993 reds can be – give this 3-4 years and it will be even better.

Perfect bottle, top fill. From domaine.
Still quite young in colour. Medium red velvet.
Incredible bouquet! Red flowers, roses, violets, cloves, spice box, underbrush, curry powder. After an hour it shows cherries, meat and mushrooms. Very deep and complex nose.
Just lovely taste! Still young and vital fruit, lots of energy and incredible depth. Complex and layered. Elegant mineral structure, almost salty, silky mature tannins that melts into the gum, nice acidity that reminds me of lingonberries. After an hour it gets more meaty. Long long finish.
Served blind at dinner with good friends and wine lovers.
My friend call DRC's Grands-Échézeaux for mini-La Tache and I must admit he got a good point here. This G-É performs at least as good as the La Tache, and better than the 1985 Richebourg.
Almost a perfect score today, 98 - 99 points!
To me this wine is Gabrielle Anwar.

Souper "Dreamer" (Restaurant À L'Os): Un nez parfumé de roses, de petits fruits rouges (fraises des champs), avec du poivre. De corps moyen, c'est un vin féminin de très belle fraicheur, affichant classe et l'élégance. J'aime beaucoup l'expression "poivré et salé" pour le décrire, combiné à un avec un coté hédoniste qui s'affiche graduellement. Magnifique vin dont la complexité aromatique, discrète au début, devient complètement fascinante ensuite. 96+ pts

Je l'ai légèrement préféré au Mugnier ce soir là, ce dernier me semble toutefois posséder un plus grand potentiel.

4/29/2015 - noppakit s. wrote: 93 points

My first La Tache 1992 was in 2007 and this is my 2nd time.

Bottle No. 17440

A little low in level, more dark in color, mature but fuller-bodied when compares with a bottle last 8 years, beautiful nose of La Tache, austere, so classic and delicious.
If one thinks 1992 LT is weak that's totally wrong. It can hold for 4 hours of drinking and at the end, it becomes a good bottle of great Burgundy without its typical scent but getting close to the clean and elegant feeling of drinking Jayer's Cros Parantoux 1992.

This wine can go easily for another 20 years from now. I wish I could get some bottles for myself to drink it again and again.

Weak vintage, great producer, 1992 La Tache is my type of wine.
