    (Romanée-Conti Grands-Echézeaux) Medium, medium-plus cherry red colour. The nose is a little less extrovert than the Échézeaux. It starts with powdery red fruit - no raspberry - but moves on to give a deeper and sweeter black cherry aspect coupled with a little earth. The palate gives the impression of more density and a blacker tone to the fruit. The acidity is first class and that tannins show a velvet touch. On the finish this shows less like the Montrachet/Échézeaux with pure fruit lingering well. Whilst still a backward wine, this shows much better than in January and you can easily see that although it is a little less 'flashy' than the Échézeaux, it also has more potential.

    (Romanée-Conti Grands-Echézeaux) Again a medium, medium-plus cherry red colour. Where the Échézeaux was 'broad' in the nose, this is more focused though giving-up less. Higher toned with more maraschino cherry. The palate shows higher acidity and again, svelte, discrete tannin. The palate is also more focused and deep, though less 'broad' than the Échézeaux. There's similar outstanding length, but to start with the wine doesn't have the overall appeal of the Échézeaux. Slowly the nose starts to develop a wide, subtly spicy undertone (takes more than 10 minutes in the glass) which also starts to increase in depth. The palate is unchanging. I tried the second bottle and there was more obvious oak - though transient. This showed a little more depth than before and even a black edge to the fruit on the finish.
