The Thief

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti DRC Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2019

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti DRC Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2019

97 points Decanter

Bertrand de Villaine, co-manager of the domaine, has often evoked the savoury nature of the Grands Echézeaux produced from their 3.53-hectare plot down-slope from their Echézeaux. To my palate it showed more of an influence from the whole clusters – a freshness and a slightly rustic hint of menthol and earth, but he assures me that the use of whole bunches is consistent across the board. Perhaps the wine is closing down slightly – it shows less of the lush dark fruit than it did out of barrel, although the length and complexity are a testament to the quality of the wine.

The colour is a little denser, a little richer than the Echezeaux. The bouquet is more backward, yet more complex. It is hard to put specific fruits to this. Increasing weight on the nose, all red berry, no black notes. The wealth of fruit attacks quickly and then stays, with fresh roses jostling among the lush but still quite precise fruit flavours. The structure maintains its role and helps to keep this powerful wine fresh. The volume now swells magically on the second half of the palate, with darker notes.   (11/2021)
