Description

    Montrachet 1998
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    lbsl, lscl, #00669
    Bottle (1)
    "Massively rich fruit completely laced with notes of heavy botrytis, pain grillé and minerals. Very open, forward, dense and rich flavors of wonderful complexity and butterscotch that just manage to avoid being heavy or ponderous. The acidity struggles to buffer the powerfully rich flavors and this is already drinking well. Stylistically, it leans in the direction of a New World chardonnay with its forward, fruit driven style though no such chardonnay in my experience can offer this kind of sheer density, power and profound length. Hardly classic in style but dramatic and compelling nonetheless. This will mature relatively early but should last for a long time." (92pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #3, July 2001)

    I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
