2008 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy - 97-98 pts!
The 2008 Romanee-Conti offers an uncanny amalgam of viscosity and velvety texture with fresh fruit vivacity, buoyancy, and ethereal florality. “I think this is the loveliest Romanee-Conti we have made in many years,” remarks de Villaine. It is what it is, he suggests, “for me, the wine with a capital ‘W,’ whereas it’s hard to pull-out the individual parts.” Granted, but it’s my professional duty to try. Black currant and rhubarb; saline meat stock; perfume of peony, iris, and rose; myriad spices; and a crystalline sense of shimmering mineral elements such as one more usually associates with a great white wine are all part of the allure to a kaleidoscopically complex, youthfully harmonious wine that soars and floats for a finale. This will be savored – and much talked-about – for several decades. RP
