    Description

    Grands Echezeaux 2005
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    banded owc
    Bottle (6)


    "This was last year and still is considerably more reserved and less expressive though the discreet aromas are decidedly more elegant with much more floral influence on the violet and rose petal infused aromas that are nuanced by soy, hoisin and clove notes that can also be found on the muscular, robust and powerful big-bodied flavors that exude dry extract on the detailed and hugely persistent finish. This is both stylish and classy with tautly wound flavors that have that great sense of underlying tension and cuts-like-a-knife precision. Note however that this is, at a comparable stage, so much more primary and backwards than normal that this will need a very long time in the cellar to arrive at its majority, indeed I am not at all sure that the 20 years that I am suggesting will be sufficient." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #29, Jan. 2008)


    Estimate: $10,000 - $13,000.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
