Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2001

Your nose it greeted by a wave of spicy red fruit and florals. The palate is met by earth, minerals and concentrated but not heavy red fruit. Persistent & great balance.. having so little experience with this wine makes it very hard to give a drinking window. For me it was in a perfect spot. — 12 days ago

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2011

Casually poured double-blind from a brown bag at the very end of the night while our heads were still spinning from the incredible quality on display. The senses were overloaded. It was blood lust. And then…I smelled my glass. An overwhelming feeling of serenity washed over me. It’s was almost as if a pair of noise-cancelling headphones were placed in my ears. This was different. It commanded attention. This wasn’t a wine from the Rhône. It smelled like Burgundy…and it was special. There was brilliant structure accompanying the most sublime fruits and exotic spices. I looked up at my buddy Matt who was also nosing his glass and our eyes met. He was also spellbound. He then quietly declared to me, “this is DRC”. I thought to myself, surely no. This late? After everything we just had?? Until now, I had never tried DRC so I had no frame of reference but Matt seemed pretty confident. Then some of the others started to fall into the trance. Everyone was falling over themselves. The bottle was pulled from the bag by our host. And there it was. A 2011 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Échézeaux. It was just beautiful. I was different now…almost like losing my virginity. What a sensational nightcap. — 13 days ago

Dark cherries, ripe blueberries, herbs, musk, hint of sandalwood. Beautiful concentration and purity of fruit on the palate unfurling with ripe strawberry compote and some herbs. Long finish. Great stuff as usual - punching well above weight if only slightly new world in style given the weight today. — 24 days ago

Clos St. Jacques Vieilles Vignes Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Night and day difference in showing from this bottle in March. In hindsight, I think the last one may have had travel shock. Tonight, 2013 CSJ coming from 100+ year old vines is superb after a lengthy slow ox, soaring from the glass with crazy aromatic intensity showing a delicate oak framed red and blue fruited profile with winter citrus, cocoa bean and red roses. The palate shows Grand Cru depth, stunning elegance and purity with fine grained tannins and a penetrating salty mineral laced finale that goes on and on. It’s still young, but 13’s from the big dogs are really starting to shine. Hold the reductive 12’s and tannic 14’s and pop the elegant 13’s. — 20 days ago

Clos de la Maréchale Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Belle matière et concentration sans être trop. Assez Puissant et encore serré un peu. À attendre quelques années surement avant d’être à son peak. 90-91

Very nice now, powerful and tight still, needs a few years of cellar still,to be at it’s peak.
