    Richebourg 1988
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    ssos, #00024
    Jeroboam (1)
    "Luxuriantly powerful fruit of spice, jam and violets with obvious pinot extract lead to amazingly powerful yet velvety flavors. There are ample tannins but the extract more than buffers them. Huge, rich and long from beginning to end, this is still very much of a baby. In fact, there is so much extract and this is so youthful that this should continue to evolve for some years to come. To be sure, there are the typical '88 tannins present and noticeably so on the finish but as noted, there is good mid-palate extract to maintain balance and at 16 years of age, the wine is remarkably fresh and very Richebourg." (93pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2004)

    "Luxuriantly powerful and now fully mature fruit aromas of jam, spice and violets with essence of pinot extract aromas lead to amazingly powerful yet velvety medium bodied flavors that are supported by firm but softenting tannins where the extract more than buffers them on the delicious, long and mouth coating finish. This has now reached full maturity and is drinking perfectly now though some may wish to wait even longer to allow the still moderately firm tannins to soften further." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct. 2010)
