Vinous – 94
Domaine de La Romanée-Conti’s 2009 Vosne-Romanée Cuvée Duvault-Blochet is a wine that captured the essence of this precocious vintage to the fullest. Ripe, voluptuous and totally thrilling, the 2009 Cuvée Duvault-Blochet was in exceptionally fine form.
Robert Parker – 91
Tasted at â€œThe Samplerâ€ icon tasting in London. The intermittent Premier Cru from DRC would embarrass many a Grand Cru and their 2009 is wonderful. The 2009 has a fine, delicate bouquet with dark cherry, plum, scorched earth and even a cheeky touch of white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, chalky tense tannins and vibrant acidity. There is fine structure on the finish that is still very backward, and perhaps it might benefit from a little more persistency, but it is a lovely wine. Tasted December 2012.
