    Description

    Echezeaux 1996
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    banded owc
    Bottle (12)
    "Very impressive colour - really quite deep crimson - very solid and glamorous looking! Rich nose, hints of compost, and definitely going into mature phase. Solid and sturdy and rewarding. Very slightly dusty tannins but excellent balance of fruit and acidity. Really impressive wine for drinking pretty soon. So long as you didn't taste the Tâche immediately afterwards you would love it! The mellowest wine of this entire range?" (18.5pts JR, Feb 2008)

    "The Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fashioned outstanding '96s and while this will not challenge the dominance of its more esteemed stable mates, it is clearly a lovely effort. The expressive nose displays lovely spice and violet aromas that offer more elegance and finesse than usual and lead to rich, sweet and moderately structured flavors supported by bright but not aggressive acidity and excellent finishing persistence. I quite like the '96 Ech and while it could be approached now with the right food, it would be better to let this slumber in the cellar for another 5 to 8 years before drinking over the following decade." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Aug. 2008)
