Grands Echezeaux (lower level) (0.75 L)
WA:It is several years since I last tasted the 1985 Grands Ech¿ªzeaux from Domaine de la Roman¿ªe-Conti. It has a beguiling, feminine nose that can disarm you from the other side of a room. The mineralit¿ª here is totally absorbing, to such an extent that you almost miss the purity of the red cherries and wild strawberry fruit. The palate is extremely focused, underpinned by filigree tannin and a gorgeous fleshiness typical of this vintage (in the right hands.) There is a sense of build to this Grands Ech¿ªzeaux that leaves you totally in awe of its prowess.
