The first bottle was beautiful, in a perfect place right now. The nose was bright and punchy with notes of sandalwood, dried flowers, red fruits and mint. It was mid-weight in the mouth and fine and lacy with good detail. The second bottle was similar but just a tad sweeter in the mouth without quite the detail of the first bottle.
Really nice perfumed nose with some earthy notes. On the palate, very focused powerful but elegant fruit. Well balanced. Tasted before dinner without food and with salmon and brussels sprouts at dinner. Enjoyed it immensely both ways. My first taste of any DRC and I was impressed despite high expectations.
La Paulee 2.0 S.F.: He come's the DRC flight(ech,rsv,tache)....amazing nose's! The ech drinking extremely well...slightly better than the rsv....deep exotic spice, berry liqueur fruit, great balance, smooth feel, dusty white pepper spice kick finish.
Beautiful nose that moves around oriental spice to fossilized earth. Palate not quite as profound, warm fruit/dark cherry with some earth and green wood. Either this is too young or JScott is spot on (really nice pinot, but not really clear this will turn to be profound). All that said, definitely one of the most unusual pinots I have tasted so far, I suppose this is what you are paying for in DRC?

(Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Medium-plus cherry colour, shading to ruby at the rim. An understated nose of pure cherries and faint vanilla. Nice volume in the mouth, showing good sap. There’s good acidity and very well covered tannin. There is a lovely length to this wine, also tinged with vanilla. A wine that is very ‘2000’ in its bright and pretty fruit profile and one you could certainly enjoy at a relatively young age, say in another 4 or 5 years. But I’m sure the more patient amongst you will be amply rewarded.
