Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg Grand Cru 1999

  • This hasn't budged much since it was bottled and remains almost opaque with a notably ripe and gorgeously multidimensional nose of black cherries, spice, and earth. The broad-shouldered and impressively scaled medium-weight-plus flavours are bold and overtly muscular, while the finish retains a sense of robust power and stunning length. At age 17, the '99 Richebourg is clearly signalling that it will require 20 to 25 years to really be at its peak. At the same time, there is sufficient mid-palate sap to at least make it approachable sooner, perhaps in seven to 10 years. I believe 1999 is one of the great vintages for this fabled wine. Many consistent notes save for one bottle that displayed an annoying amount of brett.
