Lot #106. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echézeaux 1985

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 WA.
"It is several years since I last tasted the 1985 Grands Echézeaux from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. It has a beguiling, feminine nose that can disarm you from the other side of a room. The mineralité 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 Echézeaux that leaves you totally in awe of its prowess. " eRobertParker.com #217, Feb 2015
Notes: 4cm, heavily corroded capsule, scuffed and marked label, signs of slight past seepage, #006285.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,800
