The 1990 RSV from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is also a beautiful example of the vintage, but it seems a bit further along its evolutionary march than either the Echézeaux or Grands Echézeaux.

The 1990 RSV from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is also a beautiful example of the vintage, but it seems a bit further along its evolutionary march than either the Echézeaux or Grands Echézeaux. The truly superb nose offers up scents of raspberries, beetroot, cola, duck, woodsmoke, forest floor and smoky new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and already quite tertiary, with a fine core, lovely soil inflection and a long, modestly tannic and slightly chunky finish. In this wine, the ripeness of the vintage has taken away just a hair of the inherent elegance of the terroir on the backend of the palate, but it has countered this with a bit more mid-palate muscle than in many vintages. A lovely wine, but I suspect it will not be quite as long-lived as either of the above two wines.

Firm and flavorful with a strong toasty-smoky edge to the earthy currant and plum aromas and flavors finishing with a polished core of flavor poking through the veil of chewy tannins. Best in 1998.
