    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Tasted blind. Medium, medium-plus colour. High-toned, less dense than the previous 2003, narrower and more floral, slowly adds weight and dimension. Lovely palate, plenty of fine tannin, fresh candied red fruit. Good density, a slow diminuendo to the reasonably long finish. Very stylish. Someone else guessed the vintage, I got the appellation.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Medium, medium-plus cherry red in colour. The nose is of crushed cherry and raspberries that overlay a faintly spicy, subtle coffee-bean base. The tannin seems to show a little more grip than the last tasting, but frankly (despite chewing on bread for the last ten minutes) I keep getting 'Montrachet-flashbacks' as I taste. The spicy palate is silken with excellent acidity and a tinge of oak on the finish that's reminiscent of the Montrachet - unless that's still the Montrachet! Clearly a pure and distinguished wine, but doesn't show that joie de vivre that was so evident in January.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Medium, medium-plus cherry red. Bright and intense nose of red and black cherry - shaded to red - with raspberry and subtle spice. The palate is sweet with very smooth tannin, nice concentration and just a little vanilla on the finish - a finish of 20-30 seconds. Smooth, understated and very drinkable - I'm surprised how easily this drinks. With time the impressive nose develops a little more spice. To put this wine firmly into context, after the La Tâche and Romanée-Conti, the nose is slightly less concentrated and certainly more diffuse. Still, there's super length if less depth on the palate - in a word the wine is just 'simpler' than the top two, but nonetheless a very fine Échézeaux.
