he 2014 Romanee-Conti Grand Cru is not a million miles away from the Richebourg in style, again with hints of damp earth and woodland, quite ethereal as it often is at this stage, becoming more airy as it opens in the glass. The palate is structured on the entry, a little fuller and broader than the La Tache, almost less discrete (though that sounds too pejorative). The acidity drives this forward and there is great substance on the finish. It will be intriguing to see whether this Romanee-Conti will retain this chutzpah once in bottle.
Usually a bit paler than Tache but not today. Very dense and majestic and concentrated. So much more than most red burgundies on the nose! An array of medicinal aromas. With rich fruit underneath. Very opulent nose. And on the palate great density and complexity. Much more than simple sweet fruit: something minerally and as though bones were dissolved in it! Majestic as usual with quite marked acidity but there is just so much packed in here!
