Winemaker's Notes

Still reserved. Discreet and serious, as is the personality of this wine. In the mouth, one detects a touch of liquorice. Above all, there is the delicate enticement of rose petal aromas.

Critical Acclaim

"The Domaine de La Romanee-Conti 2007 Grands-Echezeaux exhibits a rich, roasted meat dimension to parallel its sweetness of ripe red raspberry and cherry, with hints of vanilla and caramel adding a confectionary hint, and a flatteringly plush, creamy texture. Cardamom, soy, and ginger add pungency and savor to a long, layered finishing melange. Follow it for at least 10-12 years. "
92 Points

"Good bright medium red. Cherry liqueur, black raspberry and smoke on the sweet nose, along with some spicy oak. Offers more volume and breadth than the Echezeaux without any impression of weight thanks to piquant underlying minerality. Wonderfully silky and suave wine, finishing with building tannins, superb length and a strong impression of sucrosite."
92 Points

"A more densely fruited nose that is intensely floral in character and notably more complex as well intermingles with more subtle spice and earth notes as well as notes of game, jerky and tea, most of which are picked up by the fresh, intense, powerful and moderately well muscled big-bodied flavors that possess an attractive mouth feel and solid finishing depth. This possesses ample dry extract that renders the firm tannins almost invisible at present but I suspect the buffering effect will not last long before this shuts down. This is an understated effort that isn't especially dense or powerful, at least not by the usual superb standards of this wine, but the balance is nigh-on perfect."
