    Romanee Conti 1972
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    3.3cm, bsl, scl
    Bottle (1)

    "The perfumed and still fresh if by no means youthful nose speaks of primarily sous-bois, spice, sandalwood, dried rose petal and Asian-style tea wisps. The sleek, intense and overtly mineral-driven flavors possess outstanding delineation while delivering excellent depth and length on the somewhat linear finish where the only reproach is a touch of dryness." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2017)

    "Bricking but still healthy ruby core. This has never been particularly impressive as the aromas were surprisingly post mature early and even by the mid-nineties, several bottles were badly tiring. The bottle in the tasting (which is the best I have ever experienced) displayed lovely aromatic complexity with plenty of spice but the aromas ran to more of an earthy/sauvage character with ample sous bois rather than the classic RC profile and were followed by medium weight velvety flavors that displayed more acid on the finish than the mid-palate could comfortably buffer. To be sure, this is still an interesting RC but by no means a great one and while good bottles will still be alive and well, there is no reason to delay opening them now." (88 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Mar. 2008)
