After visiting Bordeaux , it was a relief to be back in Puligny-Montrachet, where I stay at a friend’s house. My friend welcomed me with a couple of wines from 1978: Mongeard-Mugneret Grands Echézeaux (refined and exotic, with cherry, tar and beet juice–like flavors) and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Echézeaux (even fresher than the Mongeard, with spicier high tones and a soft and seductive texture).
