Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Montrachet 1978-2015 (Jun 2019)

The 2005 Montrachet is, in my experience, a tricky and variable wine. Once again, though, we are fortunate to have a fine example in this, the most satisfying bottle of the 2005 I have ever tasted. Dried orchard fruit, spice, honey and tropical notes all grace a forward, silky Montrachet that is likely to offer its best drinking sooner rather than later. Tasted at the DRC Montrachet charity event in New York.
