Domaine de la Romanee Conti
"An exuberantly fresh if restrained nose offers up a panoply of spice elements that add breadth to the mostly dark berry fruit and plum aromas that are laced with smoky hints of violet, rose petal, lavender and a whisper of sandalwood. The tautly muscular broad-shouldered flavors possess outstanding mid-palate density as well as evident minerality on the focused, impeccably well-balanced and hugely persistent finale that just goes and goes. The '16 Riche is a bit more refined than usual thanks to the beautifully fine-grained tannins and a wine that could aptly be described as a lovely combination of power and refinement that should also successfully age for a very long time." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #73, Jan. 2019)
Estimate: $13,000 - $16,000.
Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
