2009 Tokyo Romanée Conti

On October 24th, 2009, fifteen tasters gathered for an important Romanée Conti tasting at the Okura Hotel in Tokyo.

A gathering of connaisseurs for this rare opportunity to taste seven great vintages of the world’s perhaps most sought after wine from 1940 to 1989.

The seven vintages tasted:

All were outstanding, but the 1962 came out first, perfectly balanced, refined and complex very close to perfection, followed closely by the 1978 who has shed some of the alcohol it used to show, leaving it remarkably refined yet concentrated, a masterpiece.
