    Description

    Richebourg 1981
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    hbsl, tl
    Bottle (1)


    "A cool, pure and really quite pretty nose features aromas of sous-bois and a panoply of spice nuances that add plenty of breadth to the secondary fruit scents. There is both good richness and vibrancy to the mineral-driven, intense and muscular flavors that possess an attractive texture before culminating in an impressively long and complex finish where the still moderately firm tannins exhibit a touch of rusticity. Even so the natural class of a classic Richebourg is in evidence... In sum this is an excellent effort in the context of what is typical for the '81 vintage." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2016)
