Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2013, France
PRESS: Robert Parker - 94 points. "The 2013 Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru is probably more expressive than the Echezeaux on the nose with heightened delineation. Here there is wonderful precision and penetration. A second barrel showed a more floral character, the fruit slightly redder than the first. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins. This is just full of energy percolating through the dark berry, bergamot and bilberry fruit, yet there is a firm grip on the masculine finish, the second barrel a touch suppler and pastille-like. This is an aristocractic Grands Echezeaux in the making."
