Any chance to have a bottle of Romanée-Conti is special! This bottle had an intense nose with almost a tobacco, pickled fruit and cedar note to it, also classic hoisin and spice. Lovely integration of fruit, perfect balance and purity here. Pleasing dimension despite it being only a middle weight contender. (HC NY)
Spectacular wine. Warm, medium red color with slight browning at the edges. Incredible nose of flowers, earth and spice. Silk on the palate...spices and red fruit...beautiful with a minute-long finish. Is this worth several thousand dollars? Probably not on a purely qualitative basis. But there is no mistaking it...this is a beautifully made wine...elegant in the extreme, with beautiful complexity. I may never have another...but this was magic.
