Lot #99. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Conti 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 99 AM.
"Medium ruby color. Initially, this is aromatically tight and closed but after 2 hours, it absolutely explodes from the glass with a breathtaking panoply of Asian spices, exotic fruit aromas and a touch of earth followed by rich, lush, almost opulent flavors that melt in the mouth and coat the palate with a layer of velvet on the fantastically long finish. This is a dramatic wine in every sense of the word yet it's not at all showy but rather discreet and understated. I particularly like the sense of inner power and purity of expression and this is as good a post '45 RC as I ever hope to drink. It should last for another 50 years and if you ever have the chance, don't miss it . . . . very consistent notes." Burghound.com, Jan 01, 2008
Notes: 2cm, Nicked vintage neck tag, very lightly scuffed label, #02098.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $19,000
