    Description

    Montrachet 2006
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    3 in owc
    Bottle (4)


    "As it was originally from cask, the 2006 Montrachet remains relatively discreet with almost shy white flower, grapefruit, mildly exotic orchard fruit and subtle spice notes trimmed in just the right amount of wood that lead to beautifully textured, pure, intense and focused big-bodied flavors wrapped around a firm acid spine and culminating in a wonderfully racy, dry, linear and mineral-driven finish. This is one of the more elegant and sophisticated vintages for this wine (much more so than the 2005 though it's not as big, rich and dramatic) and it's likely to be more of a Montrachet of finesse rather than overt muscle. I quite like this because even though it's ripe, there is a very firm acid skeleton that should allow the '06 Montrachet to age for a very long time though be at its peak in a decade." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #35, July 2009)
