Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, 2011 Montrachet

drc montrachetJeannie Cho Lee MW on Asian Palate had the chance to taste one of the most expensive and sought after white wines in the world recently – DRC’s Montrachet.

The 2011 she described as “lean” but also a wine with elegance, “precision” and “lovely detail”.

Although it she said it did not have the “density and depth” of the richer 2009 and 2010 vintages, she said it would benefit from “a few years in bottle”.

The 2009 by contrast was “gorgeously open and expressive” despite its youth. Alongside its “dense”, “ripe” flavours, it nonetheless has “focused acidity and an elegance surrounding its opulence”.
