Burghound: 97 Points

This is notably less expressive but not necessarily mute with its restrained aromas of red currant anise close hoisin sandalwood and once again Asian-style tea all of which is trimmed in nuances of rose petal and lavender. The remarkably intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors possess a completely different texture before culminating in a stony powerful focused and explosively long finish that delivers sneaky good length because just as it appears to be dying away it reappears. I wouldn't say that 2014 is going to be one of the all-time great vintages for this most storied of all red burgundies but it certainly should be capable of reaffirming its reputation as the most distinctive wine in Burgundy. Like the La Tâche however note well that plenty of patience is going to be required. (Drink starting 2034)


Vinous: 97 Points

Deep dark red Darker on the nose than La Tâche exuding aromas of boysenberry black raspberry violet brown spices and smoky minerality Like liquid velvet on the palate but with its purple and black fruit flavors energized by pungent sappy minerality The rising utterly bracing finish shows great breadth and extraordinary noble tannins This knockout is wonderfully full and thick yet somehow weightless owing to its outstanding mineral energy An amazing showing today but this supremely elegant wine is just at the beginning of a 30+-year life in bottle Bertrand de Villaine noted that Romanée-Conti is typically a wine of aromas while La Tâche is more about the mouth but not today (Drink between 2030-2048)

Wine Advocate: 94-96 Points

The 2014 Romanée-Conti Grand Cru is not a million miles away from the Richebourg in style again with hints of damp earth and woodland quite ethereal as it often is at this stage becoming more "airy" as it opens in the glass. The palate is structured on the entry a little fuller and broader than the La Tâche almost less discrete (though that sounds too pejorative). The acidity drives this forward and there is great substance on the finish. It will be intriguing to see whether this Romanée-Conti will retain this chutzpah once in bottle.
