Richebourg 1989 Domaine de la Romanee Conti #02583-02584, 1ssos Bottle (2)
Property of a Denver doctor. Virtually all wines sourced from reputable retailers upon release, and all stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.
"Like most of the DRC '89s, this initially seemed as though it was in a time warp with virtually no discernable aromatic development but after 20 minutes or so of air, there are hints of secondary aromas, game, leather and spice. The impressively scaled flavors though are big, rich and intense, underpinned by surprisingly rustic tannins and offering fine length. This is a formidable wine for the vintage with plenty of character and still discernable if softening structure that should enable it to hold for another 20 years or so." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct. 2010)
