Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Le Montrachet Chardonnay (Montrachet)

A great wine from a great vintage for whites, this has vanilla, ripe green fruits and a smoky, mineral character. Ripe and delicious, this brings the richness of honey and the rigor of minerality into balance.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Pinot Noir (Romanée-Conti)

This wine’s considerable power derives from its a solid texture, its multifaceted red-berry flavors, juiciness, freshness and perfect balancing acidity. You can, and will want to, hold this in the mouth for many minutes. It is a complete wine.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 La Tâche Pinot Noir (La Tâche)

  • Cellar Selection

Although this wine is very firm and closed at the outset, it opens—and keeps opening in the mouth—to offer great fruit flavors. It is finely balanced, very pure, combining an ethereal character with the proper feet-in-the-soil taste of great Pinot Noir. Age for 20 years, if you can bear to wait.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Pinot Noir (Romanée-St.-Vivant)

A delicious, flowery, aromatic wine. The flavors float around the firm core of fine tannins, plum skin and fig flavors, combining with acidity and leaving an impression of delicacy, yet also great aging potential.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Pinot Noir (Richebourg)

Smoky aromas set the scene for a complex, fascinating wine. Like so many 2004s, it is striking for the purity of its fruit. And if there is a hint of green in the tannins, this certainly doesn’t do the wine any harm. It’s more that it shows how much time it needs to mature. Aftertaste is fresh.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Pinot Noir (Echézeaux)

Pure, fine fruits along the line of raspberry and dark plums—there’s almost a dancing quality to this wine, with its freshness and lightness, with acidity and red currants giving the most delicate of finishing touches.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004 Pinot Noir (Grands-Echezeaux)

  1. $129

Initial animal, rustic aromas blow away after a few minutes. On the palate, pure fruits are dominant, just hinting at some of the typical 2004 pepper character. It’s a spicy, complex wine, with excellent acidity right through the finish, and always firm.
