Burgundy Masterclass with Robert Joseph
AWC Wine Academy, Marylebone
Tasted June 13, 2013 by Rupert with 110 views
This looked a somewhat odd selection and the choice was, I think, AWC's rather than Robert Joseph, who had little enthusiasm for the Montrachet, the Groffier or the Dugat. With the exception of the Lafon, which was as delicious as I expected, and the Latour Montrachet which was decidedly disappointing, the rest were good but not great burgundies which nowhere near justify their expense.

1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cuvée Duvault-Blochet
Served blind (we knew it was from DRC) we were invited to guess the decade. I thought the 2000s for this was youthful looking and vigorous. Then the vintage, 95, 97, 99. Leafy, so surely the 97? Even knowing it was 99 I found it hard to detect the richness I'd expect. And then was it GE, La T, E, or V 1er Cru. This time I was right. Now this is a very nice Vosne, quite exotic and spicy, but not special.
