2011 DRC Tasting (Paris, France): More purple in color than the GE. Absolutely wonderful nose of red and black fruit, some dried roses, wet stone and superb spice. The Ech had more spice and the GE had more fruit, but this has more of both. Powerful, but with more fine grained tannin than the GE. Sweet, elegant but structured. No stems. Round, long and beautiful finish. Best nose tonight.
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2011 (St. Gallen): Classic nose, ethereal, red fruit and very floral. Subtle, impalpable. On the palate light-footed and immediately a perfect poise, delicious. Then the progression starts, it gains in intensity and tannic grip, but never losing balance and elegance. Finish towards cranberries, even a touch of chinotto. And mineral. And very, very long.
En middag med 6 viner från DRC, alla från 2011. Det som dracks var Corton, Echezeaux, Grands-Echezeaux, Romanée-St-Vivant, Richebourg och La Tache. Detta är verkligen ett favoritvin. Underbar doft av jordgubb, hallon, violer och rosor. Vilken parfym!!! I smaken även elegant röd frukt med jordgubb, hallon, underliggande mineralitet, underbar ren syra och eleganta silkiga tanniner. Ett otroligt elegant, komplext vin. Detta är verkligen essensen av hur ett ungt kvalitetsvin från Bourgogne skall smaka. En riktigt favorit. Inte riktigt i nivå med 2010 men helt underbart.
Fourth in line of tonight’s six DRC 2011’s on the table. The wines had been decanted for 60 minutes prior to being poured. I’m a big, big sucker for R.S.V in general, and DRC R.S.V in particular. This is another great vintage of this wine. Perhaps not as great as the unbelievable 2010, but still. The nose shows the über sexy profile only RSV can deliver, with the most delicate and beautiful floral flower garden perfume, wild strawberries, raspberries, Vosne spices, and minerals. Such an airy and light delicate beautiful lingering perfume on the nose! Incredibly sexy! On the palate this is soft and silky, with fat velvety cherries and red berries. A lovely floral and rather feminine wine. Still, it posses the structure and acidity balance to last for 25+ years. I love this stuff!
