    Description

    Montrachet 1979
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    1(3cm), 2bsl, 2tal
    Bottle (2)
    "A simply exquisite nose of smoke, truffle and spice lead to deeply colored, mature, incredibly complex and powerful flavors supported by plenty of supporting acidity and a finish that lasts for minutes. The thick, dense flavors stain the palate and this is almost liqueur-like in its concentration yet there is no heaviness. The color concerned me at first but there is nary a hint of oxidation and while this is fully mature, it is holding so well that it should easily last another 15, perhaps 20 years. A genuinely great effort. Another recent bottle was lovely as well though not quite as impressive as the one reviewed above, coming in at 94 points." (97pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2007)
