1985 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy RARE Jeroboam - 100 Pts!
The Romanee-Conti is utterly mind blowing. The heady intoxicating bouquet delivered penetrating and sublime aromas that were even more intense than those from the La Tache. On the palate there is a veritable smorgasbord of earthly and heavenly delights. Needless to say it is very rich very opulent and very concentrated. Red burgundy and red wine do not get any better than this. My guess is that it will peak between 1990 and 2005 as it is a bit more forward than either the La Tache or Richebourg. This fabled estate has had a brilliant track record since 1978. Lalou Bize-Leroy and Aubert de Villaine seem to have everything tightly within their grasps so it is unlikely that some of the lapses in quality control that occurred previously will resurface. I am sure they still cannot understand why their estate is so frequently singled out for malicious attacks but no one should have any trouble appreciating the domaine's 1985s which are their best wines in decades even surpassing their sensational 1978s. The problem is coming up with the cash to finance them. The wines aged in 100% new oak are never filtered. RP
