Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 La Tache Pinot Noir (Burgundy)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $400

Truly glorious and incredibly seductive in the nose, with a complex but also subtle swirl of fruit, herbs and spice. Bold, sleek and velvety on the palate, with a distinct core that is pleasingly redolent of fresh-picked grape stems, but surrounded by ripe raspberry and cherry flavors. It evens out with hints of leather, toast, crème brûlée, rose petals, citrus and…

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Richebourg Pinot Noir (Burgundy)

  1. $375

Exquisitely perfumed. The wine starts off with cherry and spice, including a strong cinnamon component. It’s packed with elegance and finesse, yet reveals a rich panoply of flavors: raspberries, bing cherries, spice, plum, allspice, vanilla and thyme come to mind, all beautifully integrated into a classy, seamless whole.

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Romanee-Conti Pinot Noir (Burgundy)

  1. $1200

Made to last, this DRC is still holding back. Right now, it’s the biggest but not the best of the 2000s, showing dark earth and rich black cherries, along with notes of each, kirsch and a hint of alcoholic warmth. Turns increasingly floral and rose-like with air.

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Grands Echezeaux Pinot Noir (Burgundy)

  1. $250

Floral, spice and cinnamon notes are evident up front. Smooth, silky tannins frame an elegant array of tangy cherry, strawberry, pepper, sage and earth notes. At its core, there is an herbal note suggestive of cluster stems, adding depth and interest. A big step up from the Echézeaux.

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Le Montrachet Chardonnay (Burgundy)

  1. $1000

Supple, rich and elegant, with a silky-rich texture that’s backed by a classy core of balanced acidity. Explosive aromas of toast, grilled nuts and caramelized peaches burst from the glass, while the palate is more about charm and finesse than raw power in this vintage.

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Romanee-St.-Vivant Pinot Noir (Burgundy)

  1. $350

Mild cherry and herb aromas are followed by a touch of vanilla and chocolate. Somewhat reserved and lean, the wine is nonetheless silky textured, with firm tannins that could use a few years to come into balance. Flavors extend to raspberry, cherry, smoke, herb and spice, with sweet oak and black tea at the end.

Domaine Romanée Conti 2000 Pinot Noir (Echézeaux)

  1. $150

Starts off with beet and cola aromatics that later settle down into delicate sandalwood and tart cherries. Slightly herbal, with wisps of wintergreen gracing the light-bodied palate. And despite the lightness, the flavors are intense, finishing stronger than they begin.
