Description

    Richebourg 2009
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    Bottle (1)


    "...intensely floral and notably ripe nose that features fresh notes of rose petal, plum, mocha and cassis that are sprinkled with exotic spice notes. The expansive and tautly muscular broad-shouldered flavors are, unusually, almost as fine as those of the RSV yet even slightly more complex with the same finely grained tannins. The length is similar but at present, the extra dimension of depth gives this the barest of edges. Either way, this chewy, robust and overly muscular effort is genuinely sensational and clearly built for the very long haul." (97 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #58, Apr. 2015)


    Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000.
