Grands Echezeaux 1991

Grands Echezeaux - Domaine de la Romanee Conti

26 years

It is no secret among DRC aficionados that the "best buy" is the exceptional Grands Echezeaux. The 1991, along with La Tache, get my vote (as of 1993) as the two most complex and rich wines the DRC produced. In 20 years the Romanee-Conti may display its magical perfume that is unrivaled in Burgundy. The Grands Echezeaux exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, gorgeous as well as copious quantities of sweet, jammy, cassis fruit, and smoky, toasty new oak. Powerful, rich, medium to full-bodied, with exceptional concentration, this complex wine should be at its best between 1998-2012. *** NOTE: Prices have not been released; those listed are estimated based on recent vintages. As did most Burgundy domaines, the DRC had exceptionally low yields in 1991, ranging from under 20 hectoliters per hectare to a high of 26 hectoliters per hectare for the Grands Echezeaux. Unquestionably, all of these wines are successful and should age for two decades. Although the wines have already been bottled, they will not be released until late winter or early spring 1994, thus prices have not yet been established.
