Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 La Romanée Grand Cru replicated its impressive showing last year. It has a beautiful, very pure bouquet with raspberry, briary, plenty of undergrowth and bay leaf all with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and lithe tannin, crisp acidity, gentle grip with superb tension and structure on the pixelated finish. Deeply impressive -- as you would expect given the current market value of this wine! Tasted September 2016.
