2009 DRC, the whole shebang



2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet:
Btl 02264. Pale golden yellow. Rich nose, popcorn, butter, intense, flinty minerals, ripe lemons, scented. Rich palate, fresh acidity, lively, full bodied, more power than refinement, complex, extremelly long. 96

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Corton:
Btl 04672. Pale ruby, pinkish rim. Floral, pure strawberries and a whiff of herbs. Ever so slightly spicy. Minerals and some vanilla. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, pure and racy, lacks the Corton roughness. Elegant but a slightly biting texture far back that needs some polishing in the cellar. Long finish. 93

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Échézeaux:
Btl 10388. Bright ruby. Scented nose, whiff of roses over pure strawberries, a bit more compact style for É. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruit driven and fruit forward, almost Château Margaux like texture. Lacks a bit of nuances at this stage, long. 94

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands-Échézeaux:
Btl 07048. Bright ruby. Some herbs, spices, a whiff of jasmin over dark plums, ripe strawberries and vanilla. Scented. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, a bit grippy texture, extremelly young, again quite Bordeauxlike texture, long. 93

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Saint-Vivant:
Btl 10061. Bright ruby. Vanilla, blueberries, spices, some red berries, some scented notes. Reminds me of the 07 Petrus. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, bites on the palate, raw even after four and a half overs of airing. Even so, quite mouthwatering, needs ten years in the cellar. 95

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg:
Btl 08674. Bright ruby. Touch of coffee and herbs over ripe and sweet strawberry notes. Vanilla and a whiff of spices, scented. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, elegant texture, more fruit driven than the 07 R, feels compact even if hardly compact beside a Zinfandel. Very long. 95

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche:
Btl 11971. Bright ruby. More intense and fruit driven nose. Strawberries and spices, scented, faint hint of lavender, vanilla and almonds. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, elegant and fruity, rich and long. 96

2009 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti:
Btl 03608. Bright ruby. Strawberries, blueberries, nuanced and pure youth. Incredibly flirting nose, subdued but scented with more air. Floral, richer style, and still feels shut. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, slightly raw texture, but again, hardly raw next to another raw wine. Extremelly pure, complex and refined. Needs ten years+. 98

  1. Hvordan er Romanee-Conti i kvalitet i forhold til andre topp burgund som Rosseau Chambertin og Mugnier Musigny? Er det verdt prisforskjellen? Hilsen litt-misunnelig-som-aldri-kommer-til-å-få drukket-DRC-RC

  2. Kvaliteten er det lite å si på, men det er vel så bra viner der ute til en brøkdel av prisen. Rousseau Chambertin, Mugnier Musigny, ja også Trapet Chambertin i enkelte årganger kan gi samme glede, til helt andre beløp. Og det er flere. DRC Echezeaux er den fra DRC som oftest imponerer meg mest, særlig med tanke på hvor mye billigere den er enn de andre. Liker den nesten konsekvent bedre enn GE i samme årgang og nært inntil RSV og Richebourg.
