1990 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy - OWC 3 pak - 100 pts
The Holy Grail!!The 1990 Romanee-Conti should ultimately be the most compelling and complex of the DRC wines. Normally it possesses a lighter color than either La Tache or Richebourg but in 1990 it boasts a surprisingly saturated color that is the equal of La Tache and Richebourg. The nose offers up sweet clove cinnamon and blackberry aromas intermingled with toasty smoky new oak. Lavishly rich and full-bodied with abundant tannins this profound surprisingly large-scaled tannic wine boasts more muscle than usual. Let's hope that the billionaires that buy it have as much taste as money. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025 . The DRC 1990s all of which were bottled in April/May are among the deepest colored wines from this domaine that I have tasted in the last decade. Moreover they are firmly structured with significant tannins from both the vintage and from the aging in 100% new oak barrels. For the fortunate few who have had the discretionary income to afford the other great vintages of the DRC from the eighties 1980 1983 1985 1988 and 1989 the question is - are the 1990s superior? I am not sure they are any better than the 1980s 1985 and 1988s but they undoubtedly represent a classic concentrated long-lived style of wine. Moreover all of these wines should have a more graceful evolution and broader window of drinkability than the tannic 1988s as well as potentially greater longevity than the succulent and opulent 1985s. All of these offerings are outstanding with that tell-tale complex exotic fragrance that the DRC routinely achieves. RP
