Tasted blind among eight Vosne-Romanée wines from 1er cru and up. Funny enough this was the absolute favourite. Nose: jasmine, Riesling altereben :) Taste: wild strawberry, leather, tobacco Stunning wine.
Quite simply the best young DRC Echezeaux to have passed my lips. This is a wine that delights with perfumes and sensual textures. There’s an engaging scent of fresh roses, juniper berry, aniseed and red currants. It is a vinous tapestry woven from silk and flowers. There’s a touch of meatiness and the whole package is immaculately balanced. No crime in drinking one now and will be on my shortlist of one of the wines of the year
2008 Domaine De La Romanee-Conti Tasting (Beltramo's, Menlo Park Ca.): Amazing nose! As were all the 2008's....dusty exotic wood spiced, berry liquour-like, smoked cherry. Bright and fresh crushed red berry, pomegranate fruit in the mouth that's pure and alive with sour skin acidity, and a healthy dose of minerals. Lighter in body, but doesn't lack in flavor! Should gain with age.
