    Grands Echezeaux 1989
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    #08422, 08470, 08505
    Bottle (3)
    "Intense, elegant and pure spicy black fruit aromas that still remain relativley, if not completely, primary even after 19 years are followed by rich, full, robust and still moderately structured flavors of notable detail and precision that culminate in a wonderfully long, palate staining finish. At this point, the right food is important as the '89 GE is just now arriving at the front edge of real drinkability and it should hold here for years to come. Solidly impressive juice whose only flaw is the barest trace of finishing greenness." (91pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2008)
