Domaine de la Romanee Conti Montrachet 1994
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine de la Romanee Conti|
Wine AdvocateThe 1994 Montrachet, from 25 hectoliter/hectare yields, has a deep mineral spice on the nose with touches of star anise and orange blossoms. In the mouth, it displays an awesome silky texture and good length, with touches of nuts and spices. This full-bodied wine has the components to be a great Montrachet, but it lacks the necessary drive to carry the fruit through to its summit. My impression is that this wine will age gracefully for 10+ years. The most expensive dry white wine made in the world, the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti's Montrachet always faces high, if not unrealistic expectations. The gracious Aubert de Villaine, one of the owners of the domaine, was kind enough to allow me to taste the 1994 and 1995 Montrachet's side by side.
