30e anniversaire de Vincent: Nez subjuguant, floral , ronces, mûres, magnifique La bouche est large et fraiche, de bonne acidité, d'une belle pureté, sans toutefois une dimension ou une longueur qui soit au même niveau que le nez. Très beau vin, d'un style aérien, juteux, savoureux et racé. Sans être nécessairement grand, il est adorable! 93 pts
No formal notes taken. Lovely nose! I immediately had this down as DRC when served blind, just by smelling it. Raspberries, cherries and deep complex spicy floral perfume. On the palate this offers beautiful fruit, very good minerallity and balance. A super Echezeaux, and one that clearly is of Grand cru quality. Just lovely!

(Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Echezeaux) Medium cherry red color with pale meniscus; green, green bean, smoky nose; tart cranberry, red fruit, mineral palate with major green notes, like an Oregon Pinot, but disappointing from DRC; medium finish
(DRC Echezeaux) The 2006 DRC Echezeaux had a deeper, blacker nose with more crushed mint and rubber tire there. Cedar slowly slithered out, blending in with the rubber along with some matchbox, lit match, lavender and a purplish, floral complexity. The palate was rounder and lusher than the Vosne, and just delicious, with flavors of beet root, rhubarb, cherry, spice, cedar, mahogany and grilled meat. For sheer sex appeal, the Echezeaux was excellent.
