Bright cherry red, if anything paler than the Echézeaux. Something a bit vegetal on the nose. A bit skinny for DRC. Certainly very, very pure but needs a bit more flesh. Very fine. May well gain weight. Bit strict. ??-like! Bracing. Tonic.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026

The Domaine de La Romanee-Conti 2007 Grands-Echezeaux exhibits a rich, roasted meat dimension to parallel its sweetness of ripe red raspberry and cherry, with hints of vanilla and caramel adding a confectionary hint, and a flatteringly plush, creamy texture. Cardamom, soy, and ginger add pungency and savor to a long, layered finishing melange. Follow it for at least 10-12 years.
