The Gilded Man (Aalborg, Denmark): Served straight after Cheval Blanc 1959 and what to choose? Burgundy is in some ways the most hedonistic wine, but the comparison is apples and pears, the two wines have nothing to do with each other, except that they are rare and expensive. DRC turned out great with a sweetness, a freshness, a length and a depth of only burgundy can. It's strawberry juice for adults, mature men, you are struck on pinot nerve and is both poetic and contemplative, while sinking into the spongy forest floor with its peculiar sweetness ...
1992 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti (Frankrijk, Bourgogne, Côte de Nuits, La Romanée Grand Cru) Kleur: Fluwelig robijnrood, oranjebruine rand Aroma / bouquet: Aardbeien, boers en stallig, gebrande tonen: gerookte spek, subtiel hout / vanille Smaak / Afdronk: Krachtig, fris-zuur, super-ronde tannines die de wijn nog voldoende structuur geven, afdronk ietsje drogend. Lengte wat tegenvallend. Beetje monotoon en eendimensionaal. Algemeen / potentieel: De meest prestigieuse Bourgogne die er te koop is… Je moet het gedronken hebben… Maar 'value for money'….. Verre van dat… 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 11 + Smaak / Afdronk: 12 + Algemeen / potentieel: 5 = 83/100
Finally, I wait 10 years for my 1st Romanee Conti, bottle No. 00190 and perfect condition.
Perfume...so fragrant, elegance nose of good fruit, cassis, mineral and herbs. Deep, clean and dramatic...perfect scent of Burgundy.
In the mouth, yes !!! spiciness, medium++ but not balance and not complex due to the weak vontage, at 4 hours it's getting more round. This is nice for me.
Tha aftertaste WOWWWWW.....the most powerful and greatest finished. 3-4 layers. It robusts softly...up to the palate, stay awhile then go deep dowm bit by bit full-filled into my heart and spread out slowly to every element...almost endless...almost 10 minutes or more.
If the body is better than this, it's easily get the score 97-98/100. I have to say that I prefer La Tache 1992 because I don't like the style of fruit-scent in this wine.
