Mouton Noir Wines

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2011

Casually poured double-blind from a brown bag at the very end of the night while our heads were still spinning from the incredible quality on display. The senses were overloaded. It was blood lust. And then…I smelled my glass. An overwhelming feeling of serenity washed over me. It’s was almost as if a pair of noise-cancelling headphones were placed in my ears. This was different. It commanded attention. This wasn’t a wine from the Rhône. It smelled like Burgundy…and it was special. There was brilliant structure accompanying the most sublime fruits and exotic spices. I looked up at my buddy Matt who was also nosing his glass and our eyes met. He was also spellbound. He then quietly declared to me, “this is DRC”. I thought to myself, surely no. This late? After everything we just had?? Until now, I had never tried DRC so I had no frame of reference but Matt seemed pretty confident. Then some of the others started to fall into the trance. Everyone was falling over themselves. The bottle was pulled from the bag by our host. And there it was. A 2011 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Échézeaux. It was just beautiful. I was different now…almost like losing my virginity. What a sensational nightcap. — 16 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

My favorite of the night. Super approachable despite being so young. More merlot than 2017 so a touch more fruit right away. Plum, cassis, a little blackberry. Needs more time but super good right now. — 10 days ago

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 2001

Your nose it greeted by a wave of spicy red fruit and florals. The palate is met by earth, minerals and concentrated but not heavy red fruit. Persistent & great balance.. having so little experience with this wine makes it very hard to give a drinking window. For me it was in a perfect spot. — 14 days ago
