2000 Domaine Romanee Conti - This was surprisingly forward and expressive for such a young wine in large format. The note from 750ml follows but I would add that the nose is particularly perfumed with terrific spiciness and better overall depth. From 750 ml: Fine quality here with intense crushed black fruits and sexy, perfumed aromas of fresh flowers, Asian spices and earth with focused, rich, relatively powerful flavors that are balanced and harmonious. This is not especially structured and comes across as fine rather than its usual robust character. Delicious and quite long.
