2001 Domaine Romanee Conti Richebourg

Neal Martin 95 pts! The 2001 Richebourg Grand Cru from DRC is deeper in color than the Leroy. It is very expressive on its regal nose of black fruit rather than red, crushed stone and hints of juniper and sage, all exquisitely defined. The aromatics simply stop you in your tracks. The palate has enormous backbone and brings to mind images of a vaulted cathedral. The acidity is perfect, and it fans out with dark berry fruit on the structured, aristocratic finish. This is evolving into a marvelous Richebourg that has style and class to spare. Tasted at the DRC/Leroy comparative dinner in Hong Kong. (Drink between 2025-2060)

Burghound 94 pts! While this is showing some signs of aromatic development, it's clear that this classically styled Richebourg has a long way to go before it's ready for prime time. This still requires some coaxing before it reveals wonderfully complex aromas of a simply incredible array of black fruits, earth, spice, crushed herbs and notes of hoisin and clove that lead to focused and medium-bodied flavors that are supple, rich and impressively powerful, all wrapped in a superbly well-detailed and focused if overtly austere finish. I particularly like the almost pungent minerality and this particular vintage of DRC Riche is evolving quite slowly though my suggested initial drinking window of 2019+ still seems appropriate based on the most recent bottle. (Drink starting 2019)
