Initially this was quite shy on the nose and thin on the palate. Within 30min this took on much more weight. Nose of red fruit, dried roses, stems and cut grass. The green notes were interesting and not off putting. Great spice on the palate. And this really rounded out. Nice grip. Does not have the depth of a great DRC but damn tasty.

Chefs Table @ Restaurant Callas , The Hague: Very intens nose with spices and earth. Some green elements fading nicely into the deep and complex palate. With nuances of earth, game and smoke all wrapped in a powerful muscular finish. Due to the vintage a good but not great RSV!
A very pretty ripe nose of Asian spice, earl grey tea spices, clove cinnamon and smoke combine with deep red cherry fruit and a hint of blood orange mixed with earth tones. The aromas become more focused with air and this puts on more weight and width on the palate with spicy aromas and flavors of soy sauce. Delicate through and through and relatively reluctant to show much texture today but the aromas are quite impressive. Good cut and clarity with perfectly integrated acidity and a long, complex finish. 92+

(Romanée-Conti Romanée Saint-Vivant) Yield 28.3 hl/ha - or 1,229 cases. Medium colour. The nose starts more generous and savoury that the last wines but then closes up. Some notes of cedar and berries are slowly released as the nose widens again, becoming smoky and filling the glass again with creamy, spicy and more fruit driven notes. The palate is more masculine and tannic but shows sweet fruit and a more concentrated length. It's less elegant for sure but has more power and will surely gain balance with time. This is a much bigger step up from the Grands-Echézeaux than at the barrel tasting.
