Tasted blind, the 2003 Grands Echézeaux from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti impressed its audience and duped everyone from thinking it heralded from the 2003 vintage. It has a potent ripe strawberry, mulberry and dried rose petal nose that actually had to throw off a little reduction upon first acquaintance. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of sappy red berry fruit. The initial tightness gradually dissipates to reveal quite a "stocky" Grands Echézeaux with good length, if not the detail of a top vintage from this vineyard.

Neil Martin, Wine Advocate.

A stunningly pure and distinctly floral black pinot fruit nose that displays spice, plum and hints of smoke and animale that introduces round yet structured, muscular yet accessible flavors of phenomenal richness and power. This is a big wine that combines power and finesse though it is a good deal less elegant than it usually is but it is forceful, powerful and exceptionally long. 

Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Absolutely staggering to be offered a fourth pour of this stunning wine at last November's fundraising dinner in aid of Marie Curie at Vintners' Hall! Introducing the wine, Aubert explained that the vines in this heatwave vintage were extremely resilient. The fruit was almost prune-like which faded as the wine settled into the glass. Then the terroir started to assert itself. This was a truly gorgeous wine, which may or may not have been rather sweeter than usual. Tip top. Vibrant. At the top of its game. It probably evolved slightly faster than some other vintages. Drink through 2030.
