    (DRC Romanee Conti) The Chairman then decided to close the evening in strong fashion with a 2004 DRC Romanee Conti.  I was expecting this wine to be closed and shut down, but I was shockingly surprised to find the exact opposite.  I couldn’t believe how good and drinkable this wine was.  I guess that’s why the price of it has gone up 50% over the past year or so; others must be actually drinking it, too.  The first aroma that came to mind was green bamboo.  It got meatier and purple rather quickly, with some green cedar emerging.  ‘So good’ came up repeatedly in my notes, and the palate dripped black fruits.  Pinches of dust and citrus combined with furious rubber and great spice.  Its green was so good, there it was again.  Flavors of garden, bell pepper and brown sugar added up to ‘surprisingly delicious.’  This was definitely the best, young RC that I have ever had, and the only time I can remember one as young as this being certifiably enjoyable in every sense of the word.  The only question I had about it was, will it ever get any better (96)?

    (Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti) Yield 26.55 hl/ha - or 471 cases. Medium-pale colour. The nose is wide and deep, translucent rather than dense with quite pleasant stem notes. Bottle two seems to be have more depth and show a more floral, violet aspect. It's hard to point out specific attributes as there is that Romanée-Conti 'whole-ness' that provides such a measure of balance. Understated and precise, there is so much harmony and sophistication here. Certainly a wine for reflection rather than to impress.
