Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 94.7 pts. and median of 96 pts. in 4 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by rnellans on 3/1/2014 & rated 96 points: I know…this is a baby killer. Huge expressive nose from the get go. Very dark. Spice, dark fruited. Burg funk. Very comples aromas. Very big structure that is so well balanced. No secondary. In it for the long haul. (2149 views)
 Tasted by fclarity on 1/6/2013 & rated 92 points: Tasted blind, I don't usually taste wine this young. However, if pressed I will do my duty! The high- intensity nose of rhubarb, blackcherry, smoked meat, and soil was starting to evolve and was very well integrated.

In the mouth, this was medium+ bodied with nice fruit complexity and rounded tannin. While clearly way too young to show its best right now, this wine should pick up numerous points with 20-30 years of bottle age. This should be outstanding! (3515 views)
 Tasted by Tavastgatan on 2/6/2011 & rated 96 points: As expected this is as serious wine, but it was unexpectedly open for business. No infanticide here. The nose is just lovely, but with quite a bit of oak. Tons of magic fruit and everything is balanced and well integrated. As with other Richebourgs that I have had it is hard to break out any details, the impression is rather that of a great whole. In any case, a very fine bottle of wine. (5345 views)
 Tasted by Alex G. on 2/7/2010: DRC Superbowl (Phoenix, AZ): Cola is the most prominent note in this wine, it's utterly different in every way from '06. Intense, powerful, and clearly in need of time. (5903 views)

Burgundy-Report (4/1/2008)
(Romanée-Conti Richebourg) A wide nose - not so deep and focused as the Vivant, but rather fine and edged with higher-tones and caramel. After 30 minutes there is more definition and focus with a lovely floral aspect. On the palate the effect is very specific; it stains your tongue with complex flavours - but without apparent weight - now that’s impressive. Faintly furry tannin, super-wide and beautifully textured. I don’t think this wine is showing all it has, but what it does show is completely stunning - a wow wine.

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
