  • Note Audouze : La Romanée Conti domaine de la Romanée Conti 2010 n'en apparaît que plus grande, tant le contraste est sensible. Le nez est vraiment Romanée Conti. Tout ici est dosé à la perfection. Tout est suggéré. Michel Bettane dit que cette Romanée Conti est parfaite. Il signale le poivron dans le final qui pour lui est une signature. Le final est salin et c'est le seul des rouges dégustés qui a cette trace saline. Il est parfait car tout ici est assemblé et cohérent. C'est l'équilibre. Il est soyeux, velours, porteur d'extase. Il est subtil et de belle râpe.

  • Horizontale Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2010 (Toqué! Montréal): La perfection du pinot noir. Complexité inouïe du bouquet, d’un attrait inexplicable et hypnotisant. Bouche d’une élégance, d’une finesse et d’une noblesse inimitables. Un vin pénétrant et aérien qui me laisse sans mot. Pour reprendre les mots d’Allen Meadows: « In short, young burgundy just doesn't get any better than this. » 99-100

  • 2010 DRC Tasting: Moving on to the Romanee Conti, the table talk was that it would be more reserved than the prior wines and that turned out to be correct. The color was lighter and cloudier than the La Tache. The nose was more reserved but exhibited the same level of complexity if not more floral and spice notes in a very subtle way. Initially quite closed in the mouth, but after about 45min in the glass it revealed more and more fruit, but was definitely holding back. My last sip was the best with an incredibly long finish emphasizing spice, stems and floral notes. Excellent grip and wonderfully fine tannin. The La Tache was more showy for sure, but the supreme elegance of this wine was clear.

  • Lalou Bize-Leroy has said somwhere that it took her 20 years to understand Romanée-Conti. It took me no more than 2 sek. Magic is happening to me as I am served two wines in Riedels Burgundy Sommelier glass blind. Two amazing wines it turns out. Both glasses scream of supreme quality. I am told that one is 2010 La Romanée, and in what company is 2010 La Romanée the lesser wine? Only when compared with Romanée-Conti 2010! Hard to rate of course it's more or less otherworldly, but it's either a perfect wine or as close as can be and no matter how great La Romanée is, Romanée-Conti is superior.
