Red Burgundy Romanee Conti 1995 Romanee Conti

[UK agent]

1 Bottle 75cl £16,000
  • An opulent, spicy, lush, highly floral and powerfully complex nose merges seamlessly with deep, classy, sappy, simply gorgeous, fresh flavors that offer incredible depth and purity of expression. Classy, pure and the length doesn't seem to quit. The 95 isn't an especially big wine and though it's by no means shy, the breadth of flavors and underlying nuance seems endless. If there is a nit, there is just a hint of finishing dryness that disappears with food but a careful taster will notice it. Otherwise, this is extremely impressive and though it can be approached now with extended airing, I would continue to cellar it and there is no question in my mind that it should continue to age effortlessly for years.

Red Burgundy Romanee Conti 1996 Grands Echezeaux

[UK agent]

2 Bottle 75cl £2,000
  • Tasting note: (with thanks to Bruce Khouri). Deep ruby. What was once quite aromatically tight and backward has now begun to open to reveal elegant red and black fruit aromas nuanced by ample spice and warm earth nuances that are followed by middle weight, focused and still somewhat reserved flavors that culminate in a firm but not hard finish and while there is noticeable acidity present, it is not in the aggressive fashion that plagues any number of '96s. Over several hours, this becomes superbly elegant and spicy with outstanding precision and detail and it's clear that the extended aeration is the key to really getting all there is out of the '96 GE at this point. This is still on the way up and in good storage, it should live for decades. Moreover, given how many '96s are showing today, this has to rank among the best of the vintage. Multiple, and consistent, notes.

    The 1996 Romanée Saint-Vivant Grand Cru continues to be an absolutely delightful wine from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, and puts to rest memories of a sub-par bottle tasted blind several years ago. Now two decades old, it retains a healthy color with little sign of ageing. The bouquet is fresh and vital, angular at first yet seeming to gain harmony with each swirl of the glass. It is not intense, but prioritizes clarity and tension over power. Dark berry fruit emerge first, briary and Vervain tea, an underlying mineralité eventually coming forth. The palate is very well balanced, quite linear and certainly not flamboyant or flattering. It makes you, the taster, work to seek out its nuances, its energy and refinement. Hints of black cherry intermingle with a marine-like undertow that governs that finish. It does not posses huge depth and I think Aubert de Villaine makes a more sophisticated wine nowadays, but it remains a joy. Tasted September 2016.

    As is often the case with this youthful wine, the nose was extremely reticent. After considerable coaxing, I had a peek at this offering's deeply ripe dark fruit aromatics. But what a flavor profile! A massive explosion of profound and intense cherries, raspberries, boysenberries, and strawberries coated my palate. It is a medium-to-full-bodied, densely-fruited, and powerful wine that is perfectly balanced and delineated. Projected maturity: 2005-2018.

Red Burgundy Romanee Conti 1996 Romanee Conti

[UK agent]

1 Bottle 75cl £16,200
  • This is backward to the point of being almost inexpressive though with extended airing, subtle aromas of black fruit, hoisin, spice, underbrush, anise and violets frame understated, refined, elegant and classy flavors of incredible breed and fantastic complexity. This will live for decades and it is so young that it hasn't even begun to reveal what it will ultimately be capable of delivering. And like the 2001 version, the transparency here is nothing short of remarkable. In short, opening a bottle anytime before 2012 will indeed be egregious infanticide and as the drinking window suggests, patience is required, or if need be, at least three hours of in a decanter. Consistent notes.

    Producer note: Co-director Aubert de Villaine was away on a trip to the Far East during my visit though I discussed his view of the vintage during my 2008 trip, the impressions from which are included below. For the tastings and other details, I met instead with cellar master Bernard Noblet. M. de Villaine described the 2008 growing season as one where the "vegetative cycle started much later than in 2007 as April was both cooler and wetter. The weekend of Rameaux the wind came from the west, which told us that it was going to be a difficult year. [Rameaux is the Sunday before Easter (Palm Sunday) which celebrates Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey. There is an old Burgundian saying that the direction of the wind, called the vent de Rameaux, will be the dominant wind of the vintage.] The silver lining in this however was that the poor weather created a high proportion of shot berries, which added a lot of concentration to the musts. The floraison was late compared with other recent vintages and was spread over almost three weeks, which typically, and unfortunately, means that the ripening of the berries would be heterogeneous. The prediction of the vent de Rameaux came true as the wind brought rain storm after rain storm from the west during the months of June, July and August. This of course put heavy pressure on our vineyard team to be out treating, leaf pulling and keeping the bunches well aerated. It was such a delicate balancing act that any missteps would have had severe consequences for the quality of the fruit, particularly from botrytis. By the beginning of September, we were becoming increasingly anxious. Mercifully, the rain stopped completely on the 13th of September and the next day the west wind was replaced by the north wind. The beneficial effects of this steady cool and dry wind served to dry out the vineyards, stopped the botrytis and evaporated excess water from the grapes all while accelerating the maturities. We began picking on the 27th in La Tâche because the vines had come to the end of their vegetative cycle and there was no more photosynthesis occurring. We finished with Echézeaux on the 6th of October. Sorting was seriously important, so much so that we threw out between 30 and 40% of the crop. What we kept though was perfectly ripe and had everything necessary to create wines that will age for years. Yields though were very low, even for us at between 15 and 19 hl/ha. Sugars ranged between 12.5 and 12.8% and we destemmed between 30 and 40% of the fruit. Because the weather was so cool at harvest time, so were the grapes when we deposited them into the fermenters and thus there was a natural cool maceration of 9 to 10 days. The extraction did not come easily so we let the grapes macerate tranquilly to accomplish the extraction by themselves. The total cuvaison lasted from 18 to 20 days, depending on the wine." Bernard Noblet added that at this early stage the '08s reminded him of the 1998s.
    Tasting note: A more densely fruited nose that is intensely floral in character and notably more complex as well intermingles with more subtle spice and earth notes as well as notes of game, jerky and tea, most of which are picked up by the fresh, intense, powerful and moderately well muscled big-bodied flavors that possess an attractive mouth feel and solid finishing depth. This possesses ample dry extract that renders the firm tannins almost invisible at present but I suspect the buffering effect will not last long before this shuts down. This is an understated effort that isn't especially dense or powerful, at least not by the usual superb standards of this wine, but the balance is nigh-on perfect.

    Producer note: Please see Issue 73 or the appropriate Burghound.com database entries for co-director Aubert de Villaine's detailed description of the 2017 vintage. For ease of reference, the Montrachet was bottled in April 2019. (Wilson & Daniels, www.wilsondaniels.com, CA, USA; John Armit Wines, www.armit.co.uk, Berry Brothers & Rudd, www.bbr.com, Justerini & Brooks, www.justerinis.com and Planet Wines, www.planetofwine.com, all UK; Sequin & Robillard/Vinifera, www.seguinrobillard.ca, Canada).
    Tasting note: A restrained nose flirts with the exotic while requiring aggressive swirling to eventually reveal aromas of essence of pear and apple compote, passion fruit, tangerine peel, spice and a subtle but not invisible touch of wood. The dense, opulent and caressing big-bodied flavors possess outstanding mid-palate concentration thanks to the copious amount of sappy dry extract that also buffers the citrus-tinged acidity shaping the hugely long, youthfully austere, dry and gorgeously complex finish. This is at once powerful and muscular yet for all of the imposing size and weight, the balance is impeccable save for a minor touch of warmth. Even so, there is a real sense of harmony that should enable this exceptionally tightly wound beauty to age gracefully for years to come. This is sublime and while 2017 is not the best young Montrachet that I have tasted from the Domaine, but among them and this has the potential to be genuinely great as it should have no problem making for very old bones.
