Tasting Notes

The 1997 Romanée-Conti reveals a saturated dark ruby colour as well as a mouth-watering nose of leather, juniper berries, cherries and spices. On the palate, it marvelously combines the powerful, ripe fruit characteristic of the vintage with magnificent delineation and elegance. This soy sauce, licorice, flower, as well as blackberry flavoured wine is dense and concentrated, yet lace-like and gloriously precise. It stands, as is expected given its rarity, price, and reputation, as one of the stars of the vintage. Projected maturity: 2001-2012+.
