Lot #327. Domaine Leroy Richebourg 1988

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"The 1988 Richebourg has slightly less finesse and a less perfect bouquet than the Romanee-Saint-Vivant, but it is more muscular, fuller-framed, and a titan of a wine with its huge proportions and massive concentration and depth. This is a monumental old-style burgundy that is meant to last for ages, and I am envious of anyone who is fortunate enough to put it in their cellars. The 1988 vintage attests to a remarkably auspicious start for the new Domaine Leroy in Vosne-Romanée." Burgundy Book, Jan 1990
Provenance: The Mandarine Cellar
Notes: 3cm, chipped wax capsule, very lightly wrinkled and very lightly bin soiled vintage neck tag, bin soiled label.
