Like many 2002s at five years of age this is really beginning to close up and become a good deal less expressive. Vigorous swirling however coaxes a superbly detailed if reluctant nose of dried rose petals kirsch and plenty of spice elements. The medium weight plus flavors are taut focused very backward powerful and punchy and like the nose blessed with seriously impressive detail and layer after layer of sappy extract and incredible depth. Impeccably balanced with a certain tenderness here with tannins that are sophisticated and quite fine with the classic Romanée-Conti character of an almost spiritual sense of harmony. Though it will need a lot of time this will become a great vintage for Romanée-Conti.

Good deep red. Reticent aromas of plum mocha and earth; currently in a shell and not showing the treble notes of La Tache. Then silky and thick but very closed even inscrutable. Comes across as less sweet and less vibrant... Good deep red. Reticent aromas of plum mocha and earth; currently in a shell and not showing the treble notes of La Tache. Then silky and thick but very closed even inscrutable. Comes across as less sweet and less vibrant today than La Tache but this is chewy voluminous and quite powerful with very good supporting acidity. Offers complex soil-inflected flavors of tobacco underbrush damp soil and menthol but less of the spicy high tones of La Tache. But the tannins here are even suaver and the wine is at least as long. Give this and La Tache 12 to 15 years of aging.
