Vosne Romanee 1er Cru, Domaine de la Romanée Conti 1999
A veritable spice cupboard of aromas greets the nose followed by ripe, effusive, supple, sappy, super saturated flavors and outstanding length. This is long, reasonably dense and finishes with a trace of chocolate. I very much like the intensity of the finish. Tasted multiple times with consistent notes.
