    #00801, 00802
    Bottle (2)
    "Mid ruby. Sumptuous appeal on the nose but with just the merest hint of something green and vegetal? Unreadable at this stage and very brutish but surely this will be great? Not showing brilliantly well at the moment cf say Romanée St Vivant. Tight and still a bit tough but there is lots here - in a high toned register. Very direct attack, very refreshing and frank. Not as flattering as, say, La Tâche. Wait and wait for this." (19pts JR, July 2006)

    "...the taut, focused, very backward, powerful and very punchy flavors are more discreet with seriously impressive detail and layer after layer of sappy extract and incredible depth. This too is impeccably balanced and there is the same tenderness here, sophisticated and quite fine tannins that one sees throughout this range of 2002s. As with all great vintages of Romanée-Conti, what ultimately separates it from La Tâche is the almost spiritual sense of harmony. Yes, the balance is perfect but there's just something else here that makes La Romanée-Conti a more complete wine." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #17, Jan. 2005)
