Lot #1. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 1991

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 NM.
"The Richebourg 1991 is showing just the first signs of bricking on the rim. It is more savoury than I expected with subtle gamey notes infusing the dense black fruit and a touch of leather in the background. The palate is robust and powerful at first, clearly very well balanced and then easing back with aeration as it becomes ever more elegant and slightly ferrous. There are plenty of tart red fruit toward the finish and when leaving it in my glass I noticed that the ferrous tincture on the palate begins to evolve on the nose. This Richebourg is cruising, and should continue to give pleasure . . . . Sublime." Wine Advocate #218, Apr 2015
Provenance: The Chœur Cellar
Notes: 2cm, very lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed label, #00339.
