DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE-CONTI, Grands-Echezeaux 1976

<p>Before the revolution, this vineyard was known as Les Echézeaux du Bas, takings its current name in the early 19th Century. The vineyard is 9.14 ha on a gently undulating slope comprised of clay and the same Bajocian limestone wash shared with Musigny, arguably the greatest of all of Burgundy’s vineyards. DRC owns 3.53 ha. The geology imparts a greater density and richness to the fruit than its Echézeaux sibling, sometimes, too, with souk-like aromas of spice, somewhat synergistic with la Tache, present at the mid-way mark. This is often DRC’s sturdiest arrow in the quiver.</p>

Red: its colour is ruby, shading towards the darker tones of magenta and purple. Its bouquet is redolent of animal, spice notes, underbrush, and prune, evolving with age towards musk, leather, fur and mushroom. When young, its aromas suggest rose, violet and fresh cherry. On the palate, there is a heightened attack and an agreeable balance between supple tannins and fully-rounded flavour. The dense texture and tight grain of these wines fully open after 4-5 years in the cellar.
