Lot #65. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 2017

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 AM.
"From a holding of 3.51 ha in both Richebourg proper and in Les Verroilles. A discreet application of wood frames the even more complex and spicier nose of relatively high-toned, cool and airy aromas of red berries, violet, rose petal, orange pekoe tea and a hint of leather. The sleek, intense and sophisticated middle weight plus flavors brim with both minerality and dry extract that buffers the slightly firmer tannic spine shaping the hugely long, powerful and beautifully harmonious finale. It would be fair to observe that this isn't the most concentrated Richebourg the Domaine has ever produced but it is one that should age effortlessly on its balance. In sum, this is a highly refined and elegant Riche with a positively gorgeous mouthfeel." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jan 2020
Provenance: The Brochet Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,000
