Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2006


Don’t get the wrong impression. I do miss my highly esteemed and deeply appreciated boss when she is travelling but I was delighted that Jancis was out of the country on 29 Jan. This meant that I got to taste the just-released 2006s from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and to meet Aubert de Villaine at Corney & Barrow’s tasting in London. (Anyway, Jancis had already tasted the 2007s, and seen the bottles of the 2006 wines, on her visit there last November, as documented in this video.)

One word that Aubert de Villaine used to describe the 2006s...
