Wine Critic Reviews:

(Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru Red) Here the expressive nose is even spicier and more floral with its lovely array of rose petal, lilac and lavender scents adding elegance to the mostly dark pinot and earth aromas that are also trimmed in a bit of wood but in this case it is even more subtle. As is virtually always the case this is bigger, richer, more powerful and more muscular with excellent volume to the rich and mouth coating flavors that deliver superb length on the chiseled, robust and hugely long finale. Patience will definitely be required. (Drink starting 2032).

Superb nose of raspberry, cherry, spices and savoury notes with a wonderful silky texture and a vibrant black fruit finish. An amazing wine that is already tasting so well so young. (tasted en primeur). Drinking Window 2028 - 2060.

Decanter | 95 DEC
Bright medium red. At once more somber and higher-pitched on the nose than the Echézeaux, offering aromas of black cherry, dark berries, violet and bitter chocolate. A step up in texture and richness but densely packed and imploded today. At once powerful and cool, conveying terrific energy to its flavors of dark fruits, salty minerality, licorice and violet. This very long, powerful wine displays a downright chewy texture and yet there's noteworthy finesse to its tannins. Really glistens on the very long, rising finish. Forget about this beauty for a decade.

The 2014 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru has a more expressive, perhaps more floral bouquet compared to the Echézeaux at the moment. There is a mineral component here that is discretely stitched into these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied, quite saline on the entry with a little more density than its 'little brother' -- he mouth tingling the sides long after it has departed. This appears to be a step up from the Echézeaux at this prenatal juncture, exuding the class of this great grand cru.

Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
