Product Description

1991 DRC Romanee Conti - Burghound - Tasting note: I have always loved the '91 vintage in the C�te de Nuits and the DRC '91s are nothing short of brilliant, indeed they are fully competitive with the Domaine's '90s, a high compliment no matter how you slice it. An extremely pure and intensely floral nose that is just now beginning to offer up subtle notes of dried rose petal that occurs in RC at 10 to 15 years of age. The overall demeanor is decidedly understated at this point, indeed the impression is one of extreme youthfulness as the big if not robust flavors remain intense, powerful and mouth coating with an underlying vibrancy and transparency that is wonderful to behold. It's almost hard to believe that at 16 years of age the '91 has barely even budged and the finish remains linear, cool and refined. A superbly classy rendition and a wine of breathtaking beauty as well as one that will easily see its 50th birthday and personally, I wouldn't touch a bottle for another 10 years. Brilliant. Tasted: Apr 28, 2007
