Lot #291. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 1981

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 91 AM.
"Medium bricking. A cool, pure and really quite pretty nose features aromas of sous-bois and a panoply of spice nuances that add plenty of breadth to the secondary fruit scents. There is both good richness and vibrancy to the mineral-driven, intense and muscular flavors that possess an attractive texture before culminating in an impressively long and complex finish where the still moderately firm tannins exhibit a touch of rusticity. Even so the natural class of a classic Richebourg is in evidence and like the '81 Grands Ech, well-stored examples should continue to hold well. In sum this is an excellent effort . . ."
