Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee St. Vivant Marey Monge 1993
Cote de Nuits
u: one 0.5cm, one 1.5cm, one 2.5cm with capsule corrosion and signs of old seepage, light bin marks to one label
"A classic and explosive RSV nose with superbly elegant black fruit aromas that also display hints of dried flowers and stem hints along with the usually Asian spice nuances is followed by still tight, pure, concentrated and intense flavors of outstanding complexity and length. This is dense and still relatively young though not so much that it can't be enjoyed. That said, I would continue to cellar this for another few years though if you're going to try one now it would not be a crime provided that it was decanted for an hour or so first. In sum, this is a dramatic and extremely impressive wine that has it all. Multiple, and mostly consistent, notes though a few bottles have displayed a more pronounced stemminess on the nose that some may find mildly off-putting." Burghound, 94 pts. 06/16
3 bottles
Estimate $2,500-3,500
