    Description

    Romanee Conti 1985
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    cuc to show branded cork, #001443
    Bottle (1)
    "The best example that has come my way was gorgeously expressive and highly spiced with a rich panoply of aromas, running from Asian spice notes like soy, hoisin and clove to a mix of primary and secondary black fruit aromas, violets the classic dried rose petal. The big yet refined flavors are rich, intense, mouth filling and still quite youthful, indeed even energetic on the palate drenching and coating finish of spectacular length, all wrapped around a solid tannic spine that will enable the '85 to evolve glacially over the next 30 years." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #33, Jan 2009)
