Description

    Richebourg 2001
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    2lscl, 2tsl
    Bottle (2)


    "Not as deeply colored as the RSV. As is often the case, this is aromatically austere though with coaxing, reveals wonderfully complex aromas of a simply incredible array of black fruits, earth, spice, crushed herbs and notes of chocolate with flavors that are supple, rich and even more powerful but not as complex or elegant as the RSV though it gets high marks for its superb detail. I particularly like the stupendously long and incredibly intense finish that offers a surprising sensation of almost pungent minerality." (94 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #13, Jan. 2004)


    Estimate: $2,600 - $3,500.
