1996 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee-Conti Burgundy - 98 Points!

This is among the world's most expensive wines as far as I know only certain late harvest wines from Germany are more expensive. It has a gorgeously bright dark ruby/purple color and extremely complex aromatics of fresh herbs Asian spices creamy cherries super-ripe blackberries and vanilla-imbued oak. This superb wine offers a mouthful of silky-textured cherries blueberries plums boysenberries earth minerals and spiced oak. This masterpiece is full-bodied dense yet extremely elegant and defined thickly-textured and immensely concentrated. Moreover I sensed this wine was holding a significant amount in reserve! RP This is backward to the point of being almost inexpressive though with extended airing subtle aromas of black fruit hoisin spice underbrush anise and violets frame understated refined elegant and classy flavors of incredible breed and fantastic complexity. This will live for decades and it is so young that it hasn't even begun to reveal what it will ultimately be capable of delivering. And like the 2001 version the transparency here is nothing short of remarkable. In short opening a bottle anytime before 2012 will indeed be egregious infanticide and as the drinking window suggests patience is required or if need be at least three hours of in a decanter. Consistent notes. BH
