35 Wines to Taste before you Die – Part 3 – Burgundy
So then we moved on to Burgundy
Chambertin was masculine, powerful and constructed well. It is a vigorous and firm wine, having a characteristic aroma of liquorice.
Chambertin Clos de Beze was a fantastic delicate wine with slightly lighter alcohol and tannin content. Both wines were showing the best of their respective terroir.
Roumier Bonnes Mares 1962
Roumier wines are more robust, less ethereal, than many others, but they still have the quintessential elegance of their commune. The Bonnes Mares is superbly concentrated and profound.
DRC La Tache 1962
The La Tache 62 is all about fragrance, finesse and balance. It is not much to say… As close to the perfect wine as it gets.
DRC Romanee Conti 1964, 1966, 1971
The scarcest, most expensive – and frequently the best – wine in the world. This is the purest, most aristocratic and most intense example of Pinot Noir you could possibly imagine. In a word: a nectar. The 1964 was the best vintage.
I know – now you are begining to realise what an amazing evening this must have been.
Tomorrow it is Bordeaux – until then have a great day.
