2003 Echézeaux Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée Conti

2003 Echézeaux Grand Cru, Domaine de la Romanée Conti

Ref: 030CONT-A
Red  |  Still  |  13.5% ABV

Two hectares of Vosne vineyards owned by the church were bought by the de Croonembourg family in 1631, renaming the land Romanée and adding the neighbouring La Tâche. In 1760 the holding was acquired - following a bidding war with the king of France's mistress - by the Prince de Conti. The vineyards were appropriated by the state during the revolution and, having changed hands a couple of times, ended up in the possession of Jacques-Marie Duvault-Blochet in 1869. Duvault-Blochet subsequently added parcels of Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux and Richebourg. The five-and-a-bit hectares of Romanée-St-Vivant were leased to the domaine by the Morey-Monge family in 1966 with the sale finally agreed in 1988. Together the DRC range constitutes some of the world's most sought-after and expensive wines.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Bright crimson, quite deep. Very rich, intense exceptionally concentrated nose – cheese to the chalk of 2001! Something more of the undergrowth than usual about it on the nose. Bright fruit hits the front palate and then there’s a lovely spread across it. Very rich but with more freshness than many 2003 burgs. Slightly dry notes on the finish though. Very flattering and lively..." Jancis Robinson

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
