Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Romanee-Conti 2011

The Romanee-Conti 2011 is a zen like statement for the 2011 vintage. The bouquet offer deep and intense quite dark pinot fruit, with notes of rose petals, cinnamon and violets. It’s currently quite discrete – but very intense with a filigree complexity of airy transparent fruit. The palate show very intense red and dark fruit … the tannins are refined and finely grained but also quite powerful .. keeping the wine very focused on the midpalate. The finish is impressively long and complex with the vibrant fruit coating the refined minerality. Discrete and understated but showing great depth and a aristocratic poise – a truly extraordinary wine.
