Visit to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (Burgundy, France): Quite young - bright golden colour. Toasty aromas of new bread. Great acidity - hazelnuts and honey in the flavours - a very long and persistent finish. Very powerful wine - still evolving, but still years away. Should be a great wine!

(DRC Montrachet) The 1991 DRC Montrachet was guava city. It had a minty, Monty style with its big mouthfeel, and Juha noted ‘jasmine flavors.’ It was not the greatest example/vintage of this legendary wine (92).
(DRC Montrachet) The 1991 DRC Montrachet that followed had more exotic sweetness and lots of caramel. The Hedonist hailed it, ‘a different beast.’ Its color was much deeper, on a faster maturity track. Its nose was musky, and Lora found it ‘luscious.’ It was earthier and heartier than the ’89, quite rich in its personality, which also had more veggie flavors, in a good way, further flirting with bouillon. While a little wild and rugged, the 1991 was an excellent, mature DRC Monty, qualitatively equal although stylistically different to the ’89 (93).
