2012 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet

Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay more

12/1/2015 - johnh1001 wrote: 95 points

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Peach, pineapple and loads of oily tropical fruit. Touch of sulphur. Pure and sleek on the palate. Almost painfully intense with searing, focused and piercing flavors. At times this was like a young Sauternes. Super long, intense and elegant finish.

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Much more purple in color than the LT. Wonderfully fragrant. Airy, pure, spice with a touch of stem/pine. Also slight reduction but much less so than LT. Lovely sweetness of red, blue and black fruit. Touch of mint. Somehow this is more reserved than any other wine in the lineup yet it has more flavor. Loads of detail waiting to come out over the next few decades. Love the blue and purple fruit. Very subtle, super fine grained spice. Long, long, long pure finish.

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): A surprising amount of reduction on the nose. I am guessing a bit on the score. By far the most detailed palate that is incredibly complex and airy with delicate yet powerful spice. Beautiful harmony, sweet, bright red fruit with rose petals and Asian spice. The nose is really difficult to assess, but I am sure it will match the palate in time. Long, lingering finish.

2012 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg

Richebourg Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Firmer and more reserved than the RSV. As expected, a bit more stern, robust and less finesse. This did soften after about an hour. More dark fruit, spice, touch of reduction and noticeable tannin. Touch effervescent. "Richebourg is the bodyguard of Romanee Conti" says AdV. Powerful and will need a lot of time. Sturdy finish.

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Candied red fruit, roses and other floral notes on the nose. Pretty, soft and refined. Vibrant on the attack, but then fades somehow. Nice spice but there is an odd burnt rubber/metallic taste on the finish. Others enjoyed this more than I did. Love the detail and the nose, but the flavor profile is somehow off vs what I would expect.

Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): An even deeper nose of dark fruit, wet stone, grilled meats and spice. Although the spice is more refined than the Ech and the nose is not a forward. Brooding. Much more complex and detailed on the palate. Elegant with a long finish with plenty of layers. For me, this boxed above its weight in the lineup.

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Much darker than the Corton. Much more forward with greater volume on the nose. A clear step up. Outstanding spice with red and black fruit. Very powerful on the palate, touch of oak and stems but still elegant. Fresh, vibrant and racy. Not really complex, but the red fruit and floral notes are so alluring. Medium finish.

2012 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): Not much on the nose. Faint black pepper and spice. Dark fruit. Pretty closed. Slight red fruit over time. More red fruit on the palate and much fuller than the nose would suggest. Strawberries and roses and spice. Some mineral notes. Texture like a Rousseau.

I have had this wine a few times before and while I could not find any fault with this bottle, it lacked the freshness of prior examples.

Lovely red and black fruit along with spice and a distinct herbal note. Many felt the herbs were offputting as with many 2004s, but for me they added a layer of interest to this wine. Nice finish with fine grip.

2001 Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Chambertin

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

1/31/2016 - johnh1001 wrote: 94 points

This started out with the nose of the night with candied red fruit, spice and some blue fruit notes with subtle truffle and earth. The palate was more linear than the 2002 but the vibrancy and primary nature of the fruit was really delicious. After a few hours this seemed more simple compared to the 02 and 96, but still tasty.

Quite a stern nose of meat, mushroom, iron and touch of red fruit and spice. After several hours more rose petal notes emerged, but the beefiness was dominant. Sturdy and a bit rugged on the palate. Seems like it needs more time to sort itself out but interesting nonetheless.

Mushroom, earth and meaty red and black fruit on the nose. The mushroom notes subsided over time to yield more dried roses and spice. This changed continuously over 4 hours and was fascinating. More power without weight. Nice grip on the finish.

Pure, airey and graceful nose of red fruit, dried roses, truffles and some earth. Classic power without weight on the palate. Reserved at first, but kept building over the 4 hours we drank it. Long finish with verve and spice.
