    August 1, 2021 - Taken to Claridges for our wedding anniversary. Ruby with almost no bricking. Right off the bat crystalline fruit and mushroom nose. Uber concentrated yet refined strawberry and red fruited palate. Over time the nose put on some more trademark DRC stemminess and smoke with swirling. The palate gained a tinge of caramel and green bean. The wine did close somewhat in the middle glass, then reopened. Just an amazing wine on an amazing evening with my wife, she rated it 98-99. If there was one element sort of missing it was the stemminess on the nose but the ultra refined palate more than makes up for it. One of those wines you really miss after the last drop and keep thinking about it for days afterwards!

    November 22, 2020 - What a bottle! super attractive and complex nose, I just could not stick my nose out pf the glass. The palate sings the same partition, polished tannins. There was a touch of green (2004 and/or stems?) but it only added a touch of complexity. Woww

    August 4, 2020 - DRC echezeaux dinner

    1990 - PNP, barnyard nose, clearly has a solid structure and sufficient tannins which through dinner started to soften and integrate nicely. Drinking nicely now but need to start drinking bottles in the cellar. 94
    1991 - didn’t like this from the start to the end. I think this was an off bottle. NR
    1997 - surprisingly similar to the 1990. Quite approachable and could go on for many more years. 93+
    2004 - this was the wine that redefined burgundies for me and it continues to be the echezeaux that leads the pack. That ethereal nose, the perfect acidity and length on the palate. Even better then the bottle I had last year. Drink now, not sure how this will evolve with time but certainly hope I ll have the opportunity to find out. 96
    2009 - just too young for me at this stage, a medicinal nose which continued through the evening. The wine started to gain some weight in the glass and the power and structure showed clearly. But needs a lot more time and has the potential. 93+ at this stage

    December 27, 2019 - Forget any of the nonesense you hear about all 2004s being green, or low quality. This was served blind so no one could be biased. And its one of the best burgundys I have tried all year. Clear to slightly hazy. Bright ruby. Floral aromas that is also starting to show some developing notes. Lots of fruit with savoury and bread. Light to medium bodied. Elegant red fruits, so precise, more fruit appearing with time. Balanced. Layered to complex. I loved this. Shared by TL

    January 29, 2019 - Immediate bouquet of wild strawberries on the nose. The amazing delicate scent of spring and flowers. The first sip exploded into a freshness that can only exist from a bottle direct from the cellars of romanee conti. The length on the palate seem to extend forever. Wow! Wow! Wow! By far one of the most beautiful bottles of wine I have ever had the opportunity to taste. Put the 99 Lafite to shame even though that was drinking well.

    (Romanée-Conti Echézeaux) Yield 26.5 hl/ha - or 1,267 cases. Medium cherry-red colour. Soft aromas of vanilla support high-toned young but quite elegant notes and subtle stems - slowly it is cherry fruit that starts to underpin everything. The palate mirrors the elegant profile of the nose - there are no fireworks, just a sneaky, undemonstrative length. Elegant, subtle, long reflective wine.
