Lot #344. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 2018

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 97 AM.
"From a holding of 3.51 ha in both Richebourg proper and Les Verroilles. This too is very restrained though a bit of swirling quickly coaxes the ultra-spicy and very ripe nose to reveal liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, raspberry and cassis that are trimmed in a beautiful array of spice elements. There is outstanding intensity to the concentrated big-bodied flavors that brim with both minerality and dry extract that confers a sappy texture to the mid-palate while also enrobing the very firm tannic spine shaping the superbly complex, powerful and massively long finish. This is a stunningly good young Richebourg with simply amazing potential that should amply repay long-term cellaring." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Jan 2021
Provenance: The Brochet Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $3,750
