Excellent Bottles fm Domaine de la Romanee Conti: Grands Echezeaux & Echezeaux Grand Cru

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

The most hallowed name in the world of Burgundy, possibly even the entire world of wines, given its quality and longevity of their wines, as well as the prices they fetch on the secondary market, Domaine de la Romanee-Conti owns or leases a total of 27.99 hectares of grands crus in Vosne-Romanée, Chassagne-Montrachet and (since 2009) Corton, including La Tâche, Romanée Saint-Vivant, Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux, Richebourg, La Romanée Conti, Corton Bressandes, Le Montrachet, Corton Clos du Roi, Corton Renardes and Bâtard-Montrachet. These vineyards are all excellently located and have converted to complete biodynamics since 2007 after seven years of experimenting with the methods. In the cellar, there are no special tricks but emphasis on minimal intervention in which the owner Aubert de Villaine has said that "the ideal is to do nothing but that is clearly impossible".
 
Today we are proud to be offering three wines from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti - Grands Echezeaux 2017, Echezeaux 2011, and Echezeaux 2017.

A cooler, more elegant and equally spicy nose of mostly red fruits and Asian-style tea is wonderfully fresh if notably more restrained. As is typically the case there is more size and weight to the broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped by firmer and slightly less fine-grained tannins on the impressively persistent finish. This is not as concentrated or powerful as it usually is but even so, it is going to require at least 10 years or so of patience and should amply reward 15 to 18.

A completely different nose offers up much spicier and slightly toastier aromas of red currant, pomegranate, sandalwood and an interesting hint of incense. There is excellent vibrancy to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that don't have the minerality of the Corton but do offer slightly better depth and precision on the lingering finale that is shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins. This should be approachable a bit earlier than usual.

A discreet touch of wood sets off the gorgeously floral, ripe and wonderfully spicy nose of red currant, menthol, black cherry and cassis aromas. There is impressive volume and richness to the naturally sweet, silky and mouth coating medium weight flavors that are shaped by fine-grained tannins on the firm, complex, balanced and strikingly persistent finale that really fans out as it lingers on the palate. This wine continues to make really impressive progress.

Subject to final confirmation.
