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

The 2008 Montrachet is a touch reduced and not fully expressive. Several recent bottles have shown more in line with what is typical of the 2008: a rich, hedonistically intense wine endowed with tremendous oiliness, textural intensity and heavy botrytis character. Two thousand-eight remains one of my all-time favorite vintages of the domaine’s Montrachet. Tasted at the DRC Montrachet charity event in New York.
