Grands Echezeaux 1985

Grands Echezeaux - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

32 years

Last Tasted 12/91; This offering has an absolutely glorious nose of oriental spices, sweet black fruits, smoke, and earth. In the mouth, it is opulent and rich, with super-ripe fruit and a silky texture. This fabulous wine is showing even better than I would have thought. Drink it over the next 10 years. *** The Grands Echezeaux is opulent, deep in color, fatter, and more alcoholic than the lovely 1980, and less tannic than the 1983. Its huge fruit, sweetness, and length are terrific. Drink it between now and 2000. * This fabled estate has had a brilliant track record since 1978. Lalou Bize-Leroy and Aubert de Villaine seem to have everything tightly within their grasps, so it is unlikely that some of the lapses in quality control that occurred previously will resurface. I am sure they still cannot understand why their estate is so frequently singled out for malicious attacks, but no one should have any trouble appreciating the domaine's 1985s, which are their best wines in decades, even surpassing their sensational 1978s. The problem is coming up with the cash to finance them. The wines, aged in 100% new oak, are never filtered.
