    "Interestingly, the Romanée-Conti possesses perhaps the freshest nose on any of the DRC '66s from regular 750 ml format as it immediately soars from the glass to reveal a classic RC nose of hoisin, spice, dark fruit, caramel and touches of earth, underbrush and a hint of game that is followed by rich, sweet and smoky medium full flavors that completely coat the palate and explode on the mineral-infused finish. A seriously impressive wine that is class in a glass and this is an exceptionally seductive RC for the usual underlying reserve is missing in action. In sum, a phenomenal performance for the relatively young vines." (96pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2007)


    Estimate: $85,000 - $120,000.
