Montrachet - Vintage 2005 Domaine de la Romanée Conti
“An opulent, ripe and moderately oaked in-your-face nose explodes from the glass, bringing incredibly com- plex and layered aromas that run from floral, citrus, spice and a full range of white and yellow fruit notes that complement to perfection the lush, rich and amazingly concentrated broad-scaled flavors that are underpinned by an intense minerality and a palate staining finish of simply unbelievable length. At this young stage, this is a massive Montrachet that is long on power and muscle and while it’s not as elegant as say the 2000, 2002 or 2004 versions, I believe that the refinement one typically finds in this wine will come in time. In sum, for sheer vi- nous fireworks, this is hard to beat and to call it a “wow” wine would be a considerable understatement. However, note that plenty of time will be required and it will be one of the longest-lived vintages in recent memory. A great, great effort.”(98pts BH)

Three months and no tasting notes, I know, but I assure you that there have been plenty of tastings, an absurd amount of great events come to think of it. January flew by, and so did February, but before February came to a close, I paid a visit to a special collection, one of which you might have heard, The Chalet Collection. I have said before and often that I have been treated to some great dinners by the owner of the Chalet Collection, and here are some of the wines I had this past year from him. I needed a kickstart to get going, nothing like a spectacular auction this weekend to get me in the writing mood again : )”
