**ROMANEE-CONTI RICHEBOURG 2014
An amazing opportunity to enjoy and have in your cellar one of the most rare and highly sought after red Burgundies from the top Crus in the Vosne-Romanee. DRC is often a guest at most of the high end wine auction scenes. 93 points Decanter Magazine & 96 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Read here about the 2014 vintage of DRC.
WINE ADVOCATE – 96 points.
The 2014 Richebourg Grand Cru was picked on 20 and 21 September at 29.75 hectoliters per hectare. This has a gorgeous, flamboyant, vivacious bouquet with blossoming red cherries, crushed strawberry, less undergrowth scents compared to the showing in barrel, replaced by pressed rose petal notes. There is wonderful delineation and exuberance here. The palate is medium-bodied with a lively, spicy, white pepper-tinged entry, just a faint hint of black truffle tincturing the dark berry fruit. There is superb backbone and density here, a Richebourg delivering on its promise from barrel, plus it comes armed with an extraordinarily long aftertaste that evokes marine-like images, something wild and estuarine. While not as flattering as the Romanée-Saint-Vivant at the moment, just wait ten years. 1,160 cases produced. Tasted February 2017.
