RAREST DRC MONTRACHET
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Montrachet 1986
Grand Cru, Côte de Beaune
In original wooden case. Slightly corroded capsules. Slightly bin-soiled labels with green US import stamp in bottom left hand corner. Levels: one 1.5cm, one 2cms, one 2.5cms, four 3cms, one 3.5cms and four 5cms.
Tasting note: This wine continues to rank as one of the most memorable white wines I have ever tasted. The only criticism may be its heavy-weight style. The light golden color is followed by a nose that zooms from the glass, offering a phenomenal fragrance of honey, smoked nuts, lavishly rich, buttery fruit, and toasty oak. The wine's viscosity, unctuousness, and extract level are mind-boggling. It represents the essence of Chardonnay, extremely full-bodied and concentrated, yet remarkably well-balanced in spite of its massive size. Gorgeous to drink now, it should last for a decade or more. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 84, December 1992
