The DRC Echezeaux 2002 is a wonderful and very drinkable wine. Ripe and fresh fruit, typical 2002, with quite a nice minerality and length.

The Richebourg 1999 is a very intense and dark wine, with loads and loads of fully mature pinot fruit. It's a very powerfull and direct Burgundy, from the rich 1999 vintage. Tasted against the Richebourg 1999 from Meo Camuzet, it did very well, being … [Read more...] about Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Richebourg 1999
La Tache 1959 is a big, masculine, robust and slighly rustic wine. I must say I prefered the 1971 to the 1959, but were on the same level.

La Tache 1985 was quite disappointing. Very nice pure and ripe pinot fruit, and some minerality, but it seem to lack the struture and the finesse of a great wine. Medium length and complexity, far from matching the level of 1990 La Tache, should be … [Read more...] about Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, La Tache 1985
La Tache 1971 is one of my all time favorites. Very rich and intense with a very charming pure, ripe and sweet pinot fruit. Very good balance and freshness in the fruit, with layers of minerality and spices - a wine for drinking. It has all the La … [Read more...] about Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, La Tache 1971
La Tache 1990 is a monumental wine, massive and intense in both bouquet and on the palate. Very complex while still rather closed, showed hints of fully ripe pinot fruit with layers of mineralty and spiciness. The depth and length of this wine is … [Read more...] about Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, La Tache 1990
