"Saturated deep red. Expressive aromas of plum, redcurrant and smoky oak, accented by mint, menthol and spices. Plush and silky in the mouth, even voluptuous, with an almost chocolatey sweetness leavened by saline, spicy minerality. Conveys an impression of big volume without excessive weight. The tannins are serious but dusty and fine-grained." 91-93 Stephen Tanzer
Located in the commune of Flagey-Echézeaux and made famous by the Domaine the La Romanee Conti, the appellation, like it’s northern neighbour (Clos Vougeot), can make wines in varying quality. At it’s best, the wines are long lived, with red and black fruits characters, forest floor and are robust and meaty.
