2014 Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Richebourg Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France

Producer Tasting Notes
Richebourg has some of the silky character of its neighbor Romanée-Conti and the firmness of La Tâche. It is a sumtious wine with power and stamina.

RP 96

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

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. Reviewed by Neal Martin. Issue date: February 2017. Drinking window: 2020 - 2050.

Vinous

(Rating 95+) Full, deep red. Wonderfully sappy, floral nose shows more red fruits than black, along with complementary oak spices. Tactile, salty and sharply delineated, conveying outstanding lift to its classically dry flavors of red berries and spices. Obviously a very young wine and yet there's nothing brutal about it even today; in fact, this is more harmonious in the early going than the RSV. The very long, broad, slowly rising finish really saturates the palate and resounds with sappy spices. Reviewed by Stephen Tanzer . Issue date: December 2016. Drinking window: 2028 - 2042.
