Lot #125. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echézeaux 2006

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 AM.
"This remains quite reserved yet very classy with a wonderfully airy and layered nose that is distinctly floral while offering up a variety of spice notes, including anise, clove and soy nuances. There is terrific intensity to the pure and sleekly muscled flavors that possess real drive, indeed this does a slow but sure build from the mid-palate on through to the explosive;y long finish. This is a fascinating wine in that the natural robustness of a fine GE is present but the natural elegance of the vintage tames it somewhat and one could quite accurately describe the '06 GE as robustly elegant yet distinctly understated. Despite the elegance, this will need plenty of cellar time, indeed I have added two years to my original estimated initial drinking window." Burghound.com, Jul 29, 2016
Notes: Very lightly scuffed, very lightly bin soiled label. #01959.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,600
