    Description

    Richebourg 1978
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    nl, lscl, #001411
    Bottle (1)
    div "A remarkably ripe and now completely secondary nose features notes of spice, earth and sous bois and is followed by rich, elegant and fantastically complex flavors that coat the palate and deliver truly outstanding length on the velvety finish. If one wanted to nit pick, a bit more acid balance would be nice but I like this a lot as it's incredibly seductive though I'm sensing that even perfectly stored examples are beginning to tire just a bit. This is a really lovely wine and the '78 is one of those rare vintages where the Richebourg surpasses the La T√Ęche." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct 2010) /div
