    Description

    Grands Echezeaux 1988
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    stamped label, #05523
    Bottle (1)
    "No bricking at all with a supremely elegant nose of dried roses, spice and Oriental tea followed by dense, complex and powerful flavors. The remaining tannins are ripe and balanced and remain well integrated on the phenomenally long finish. This is arguably the best DRC Grands Echézeaux of the decade." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #4, Oct 2001)

Allen Meadows, Burghound #4, Oct. 2001)

    "This has always been a controversial vintage for DRC and it remains so today though I continue to believe that it will prove to be a great effort. No bricking at all with a supremely elegant if still completely reserved nose of dried roses, spice and Oriental tea followed by dense, complex and powerful flavors underpinned by very prominent structure. The remaining tannins are ripe and balanced and remain well integrated though certainly not invisible on the phenomenally long finish. This, along with the 1985, is arguably the best DRC Grands Echézeaux of the decade and it will certainly prove to be the longest lived." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, May 2007)
