    Description

    Romanee Conti 2002
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    banded owc
    Methuselah (1)
    "...a superbly detailed if reluctant nose of dried rose petals, kirsch and plenty of spice elements. The medium weight plus flavors are taut, focused, very backward, powerful and punchy and like the nose, blessed with seriously impressive detail and layer after layer of sappy extract and incredible depth. Impeccably balanced with a certain tenderness here with tannins that are sophisticated and quite fine with the classic Romanée-Conti character of an almost spiritual sense of harmony." (97pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr 2007)

    "...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)
