Description

1991 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Echezeaux
A Pinot Noir Dry Red Table wine from Echezeaux,Flagey Echezeaux,Cote de Nuits,Burgundy,France

Review by Robert Parker
Wine Advocate # 90 (Dec 1993)
Rating: 92
Drink 1996 - 2008
Cost: $750-$948

The Echezeaux is usually DRC's lightest wine. The 1991 displays a deep ruby color, a tight but promising bouquet of smoky oak and rich red and black fruits, and moderate tannin in the finish. More backward and dense than normal, it should be at its best between 1996-2008. NOTE: Prices have not been released; those listed are estimated based on recent vintages. As did most Burgundy domaines, the DRC had exceptionally low yields in 1991, ranging from under 20 hectoliters per hectare to a high of 26 hectoliters per hectare for the Grands Echezeaux. Unquestionably, all of these wines are successful and should age for two decades. Although the wines have already been bottled, they will not be released until late winter or early spring 1994, thus prices have not yet been established. Importer: Wilson-Daniels, St. Helena, CA. NOTES ON THE 1992s FROM BARREL: While I cannot say the 1992s are superior to the 1991s, they are completely different in style. The 1992s are more approachable, supple, and come closest to resembling the superlative 1982s.
