2005 La Romanee (which exhibits a much deeper color than the other wines) smells of black raspberry, black tea, Allspice, resin and smoked meat. Fresh-fruited and bright on the palate, with a wealth of refined tannin and spice and distilled fruit inner-mouth perfume, this penetrates impressively with spice, pepper, smoked meat, chalk, salt and persistently pure black raspberry. Thankfully, any excess woodiness is absent from the refined length of this offering, although (despite a mere 13.5% alcohol) I detect a hint of heat. For the few who can afford this, it will be most intriguing to follow. Apr 2007, www.robertparker.com
