DescriptionDomaine de la Romanee-Conti Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France 2004
STEPHEN TANZERMedium red. Aromas of red cherry and Oriental spices, with a liqueur-like aspect. Sweet, aromatic and penetrating, with lovely acidity giving shape and life to the silky, slowly mounting flavors. In a distinctly feminine style, and more expressive in the mouth today than the Grands-Echezeaux. A supple, suave, sappy wine with a light touch. Finishes long, with dusty tannins.
WINE SPECTATORMarked by oak, the aromas show vanilla and spice notes. There's depth and richness to the black cherry fruit, accompanied by a sense of mineral. Firm yet finely grained tannins mark the finish.—Non-blind 2004 DRC tasting (February 2007). Best from 2012 through 2028. — BS
BURGHOUNDA deft touch of wood frames exuberantly expressive and luxurious black fruit nose nuanced by a huge range of spices including anise, clove and cinnamon with notes of tea and hoisin as well. The moderately full flavors are sappy, rich and sweet with ample volume and a palate drenching finish that benefits from an underlying sense of vibrancy. There is real energy here, which seems to collect and focus the flavors. There is a mild trace of dryness though it's presently not enough to upset the balance materially. Overall, this is terrific stuff and exceptionally long with virtually no trace of vegetal character on either the nose or the finish.
