    Romanee Conti 1972
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    3cm, lbsl, #4700
    Bottle (1)

    "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)
