DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Grands Echezeaux 2019 Rated 95VM
- 90+ Point Wines
Bertrand de Villaine, co-manager of the domaine, has often evoked the savoury nature of the Grands Echezeaux produced from their 3.53-hectare plot down-slope from their Echezeaux. To my palate it showed more of an influence from the whole clusters - a freshness and a slightly rustic hint of menthol and earth, but he assures me that the use of whole bunches is consistent across the board. Perhaps the wine is closing down slightly - it shows less of the lush dark fruit than it did out of barrel, although the length and complexity are a testament to the quality of the wine. Drinking Window: 2025-2065.
