Tasting Notes

This is the most backward wine in the range at present with extremely reticent aromas of ultra elegant and refined red berry fruit, spice and floral notes plus earth and underbrush hints that complement perfectly the detailed, intense and palate etching middle weight flavors that for all the reserve of the nose, explode into a gorgeously pure and driving finish of truly stunning length that seems to have boundless energy. The underlying sense of proportion and perfect balance very much confers a Zen-like character to the '08 Romanée-Conti. A potentially great vintage for this most storied of wines but plenty of patience will be required.
