  • Leathery red cherry and cranberry. Baking dough. Dry clay. Still young with exploding red cherry and grippy tannin for burgundy. Drying cranberry but still delivering juice. It's young but showing development. Incredible concentration and purity of fruit, young but showing hopeful development already. Red and black cherry and juicy plum. Enjoyed alongside a '99 Rouget Echezeaux, which had a superior nose, but a comparatively underwhelming palate. An impressive piece 0f work no doubt but probably best to revisit in a few years.

  • ROMANEE-CONTI (WINETIP - MILANO): Il più compresso e scuro della serata. Prugne, frutta cotta e terra. Cannella, mentuccia e la parte emolliente dell' amido tostato. Concentrato e poco Pinot Noir, quasi un vino del sud. Piuttosto diverso all' Echezeaux 2000 bevuto il mese scorso. La bocca è indietro, piena, materica e molto più fresca e giovanile rispetto all' RSV, la sensazione speziata dei raspi è molto presente. Regna nell' insieme una certa eleganza e il legno è meno sensibile rispetto all' RSV.
    Da attendere con fiducia almeno 10 anni.

  • Wonderful nose once eventually coaxed from the glass. Dark earth, black fruits, with underlying sweet spice. Ripe black fruit and a long finish. Sweet palate, acid currently somewhat hidden. Very young in almost all respects. May take another 5-10 years to fully blossom. 94+

  • Wine snobs that I know have described my palate as meat and potatoes because of my preference for big, bold wines from Bordeaux and for my lack of appreciation for Pinot noir. I would describe my palate as mature and I would describe burgundy as inconsistent. Nonetheless, this was simply perfect. This opened quickly and drank wonderfully. Full of ripe fruit with a long finish. If only all burgundy drank like this....
