Lot #111. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echézeaux 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
"The 1990 Grands Echézeaux from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is an utterly brilliant example of the vintage, soaring from the glass in a complex blaze of red and black cherries, plums, lavender, venison, woodsmoke, sous bois, a touch of celery seed and smoky new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and utterly refined on the attack, with the broad shoulders of the vintage playing to fine advantage with the inherent elegance of the wine this year. The core is pure and sappy, the tannins modest and seamless and the finish is very, very long, poised and gloriously complex. I am not sure if this a tad more evolved than the 1990 Echézeaux, or if the wine simply has a bit more material and therefore is even more stunning to drink at a similar stage of evolution. Dynamite wine!" John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jan/Feb 2015, Issue #5
Notes: 2cm, Slightly recessed cork, heavily damp stained, lightly mold stained label, #02710.
