Lot #216. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 2006

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 AM.
". . . mostly red berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with a broad range of spice and floral elements, in particular rose petal. The broad-shouldered flavors possess a beguiling texture even though the supporting structure makes itself felt very quickly on the firm but not hard finish that goes on and on. While this is still clearly extremely young 2006 is one of the few vintages of the DRC Richebourg with less than 15 years of age that could be reasonably approached now though I stress that there is still considerable upside development potential remaining. In a word, terrific. Tasted thrice in the several years with consistent results. Note that the last bottle was decanted for one hour in advance and while it was still very youthful, it was also reasonably accessible." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Apr 2017
Provenance: The Méribel Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed and lightly wrinkled capsule, lightly scuffed label.
