Lot #299. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 AM.
". . .vigorous swirling coaxes ripe but fresh and superbly elegant and pure aromas that are wonderfully broad and include red, black, blue and violet aromas as well as seemingly a full cupboard of Asian spices. The robust and extremely rich, full-bodied and naturally sweet flavors that are quite floral in the mouth culminate in a detailed and hugely long finish where the tannic spine is firm but not hard or unduly rigid. In the same fashion as many of the top 2005s today, this is years away from being ready for prime time and it's definitely a wine to leave buried in the back of your cellar but when this is finally ready it's going to be brilliant."
