Prince Florent de Merode

Clos du Roi Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1947

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A completely different bottle than the one I tasted 14 weeks ago. This was deeply intense and incredibly complex on the nose. Sweet red and black fruit, spice, dried herbs, and red flowers. Abv was elevated on the nose. The palate was vibrant and powerful for about 15 minutes and then slowly faded out. This did not have the structure of the #1947 #drc #grandsechezeaux I tasted next to it but the palate was just as sweet and was very complex. Also phenomenal length. #princeflorentdemerode #corton #pinotnoir #burgundy #cotedebeaune #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 1947

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A true experience. The color was beautiful and well intact. The nose bursted out of the glass with incredible complexity and elegance. Sweet black fruits, paprika, smoke, mushrooms, and just dying flowers dominated the nose and palate. The structure was well intact with silky tannins, fine acidity, and present alcohol. The wine just kept on going for at least 45 minutes in the glass and length on the palate was equally impressive. #drc #DRC #domainedelaromaneeconti #grandsechezeaux #cotedenuits #pinotnoir #burgundy #1947 #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 1985

I tasted this #1985 #grandsechezeaux from #drc last year at this time. There has been some nice development. It's heavily perfumed with good intensity and concentration. The palate has some very nice meat and sweet fruit qualities. This will keep developing. #burgundy #vosneromanee #cotedenuits #pinotnoir #domainedelaromaneeconti #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago
