Lot #205. Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 2011

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 AM.
"This is also intensely floral, in fact it may very well be the most floral wine in the range. Though it may not be quite as elegant as the Romanée St. Vivant it is arguably even more aromatically complex with a wonderfully fresh if restrained nose of hoisin, black fruit, soy and anise. There is remarkable concentration of dry extract that completely buffers the otherwise tightly wound tannic spine while pushing it to the background as the broad-shouldered flavors culminate in a balanced, long and velvety mineral-inflected finish that delivers astonishing persistence. While the Domaine's 2011s will in general drink well earlier than is typical, the Riche may be an exception to that generalization." Burghound.com, Jan 15, 2014
