Knockout nose of black raspberry tobacco and flowers; vibrant for 2003. Then dense creamy and seamless yet almost shockingly vibrant with outstanding balance and an impression of firm acids. In fact this is the highest in acidity of these 2003s with a pH of 3.5 (the rest are between 3.6 and 3.65 according to Villaine). The mounting finish goes on and on. Great wine perhaps monumental.

Young Romanée-Conti is rarely expressive yet this is as aromatically expressive as the Echézeaux with a gentle touch of wood framing stunningly spicy dark cherry and plum aromas that pull you into the wine with its seductive grace and purity followed by sweet understated and vibrant medium full flavors that display the best acid/fruit balance of any wine here. This is dense forceful and long with perhaps more sheer size and muscle than is typical yet the purity of expression and astonishing length is something to behold. But ultimately just like the La Tâche what sets this apart from all the others is not its power not its richness and not its complexity but rather its completeness. There is a serenity here that cannot be duplicated and must be experienced to really be believed. A great wine by any measure and one that will also be capable of aging with poise for decades.

Plums blackberries dark cherries spices and chocolate emerge from the rich aromas of the 2003 Romanee-Conti. A penetrating medium to full-bodied fleshy wine it possesses according to Aubert de Villaine the estate's co-director the highest level of natural acidity (closely followed by the Richebourg) of the domaine's 2003s. An enormously structured (verging on firm) effort it offers cassis liqueur spice black cherry and plum flavors. Its finish marked by solid tannin is impressively persistent. Projected maturity: 2014-2030+.
