Romanée Conti (bin soiled back label) (0.75 L)


BH:Deep ruby to the core with no sign at all of early bricking. The nose however displays just the initial hints of maturity with ample amounts of the classic spice, floral and dried rose petal aromas that also betray a bass note of vegetal though the robust and quite firmly structured flavors are intense, precise, powerful and linear on the admirably long finish. Unfortunately, several recent bottles have displayed secondary fruit characters that are well out in front of the maturation of the tannins and it’s not at all clear that this is going to come together to produce greatness. In fact, my present view is that while the ’93 RC will undoubtedly be very good, I don’t see it as one of the greats.
