Lot #386. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Romanée-Saint-Vivant Marey-Monge 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 AM.
"[this vineyard is presently divided into fourths by the Domaine and one section is never used, another is always used and the remaining two are evaluated and added or not as quality dictates; generally the amount held out amounts to 1.5 ha] This is also very primary and backward as hints of supremely elegant and seductive exceptionally ripe black fruit aromas replete with soy, hoisin, clove and anise nuances merge into wonderfully fine and refined linear and firmly structured flavors that culminate in a precise, pure and driving finish that goes on and on. This is a really impressive effort that offers terrific potential but fans of this wine should note that it is arguably more masculine than it usually is yet at the same time utterly seamless. A 'wow' wine that is perhaps the ripest of the DRC '05s. A true knockout that is sheer class." Burghound.com, Jan 01, 2008
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,750
