  • Burghound, March 2010, Score: 92

    An exuberately spicy and notably ripe, indeed even with discreet notes of torrefaction and roasted espresso beans that also reflect intense floral aromas precede big, robust, forceful austere black fruit flavors that are supported by ripe tannins though perhaps not quite as much density and length as usual. This is really quite regal but in 2000, it's more of a middle weight than its normal massive, well muscled and structured character yet this will still need another 5 to 8 years to arrive at its apogee. Tasted multiple times with largely consistent notes. Drink: try from 2015+.

  • Burghound, January 2004, Score: 92

    Extremely ripe, indeed even notes of torrefaction and roast espresso beans precede big, robust, forceful austere black fruit flavors that have slightly drying tannins but not as much density and length as usual. Really quite regal but in more of a middle weight than its normal massive, well muscled and structured character. In short, this is classy, sappy and powerful with the same hint of reduction; again, decant first. Drink: 2010-2022.

  • Burghound, January 2003, Score: 92

    Extremely ripe, indeed even notes of torrefaction and roast espresso beans precede big, robust, forceful austere black fruit flavors that have slightly drying tannins but not as much density and length as usual. Really quite regal but in more of a middle weight than its normal massive, well muscled and structured character. This isn't at the usual level of excellence at the moment but there is so much sap that I believe it will come together. Drink: 2011-2020.

  • Burghound, January 2002, Score: 90-92

    Less focused than the Grands Echézeaux but otherwise classically styled with big, robust, forceful austere black fruit and flavors that have big tannins but not as much density and length as usual. Really quite regal but in more of a middle weight than its normal massive, well muscled and structured character. Drink: 2010-2018.

Co-owned by the Villaine and the Leroy/Roch families, this historic domaine in the Côtes de Nuits produces arguably the world’s greatest wine and has become the standard against which all others are judged. It is named after its flagship vineyard, the famous monopole La Romanee-Contée which was first planted by the monks from the Abbaye de Saint Vivant in the Middle Ages and came into the possession of the Prince of Conti in 1760 who kept the wines solely for his own private consumption. The vines were replanted in 1947 and before that remained untouched since pre-phylloxera days. The domaine acquired its other monopole, La Tâche in 1933 and also built up significant holdings in other grand cru vineyards over the 19th and 20th century such as Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux and Le Montrachet. Incredibly, all the wines produced by Domaine de la Romanée-Conti are from vineyards classified as Grand Cru, the highest designation available in Burgundy.Read less
