 Tasted by noppakit s. on 7/13/2015 & rated 98 points: Bottle No. 03676/15742

Young but super good, very delicious, amazing stunning with the 3 layers aftertaste that takes a very long to be finished.

When it's getting old, I will miss this kind of power very much I know. So I should drink it at this stage again someday soon.

The 3nd Best 2009 under La Tache and La Romanee.

 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 11/13/2012: Was a little grumpy and shy. There were some ground spices, soy and dark fruits. Under the waves of creaminess is a core of mineral and it has a whip of tart cranberry to the finish (6655 views)
 Tasted by -E- on 9/26/2012 & rated 96 points: DRC 2007 vs 2009: Klar rød med blåskjær. Mørk, (nesten svidd), nese med superdyp, rik, purpur bærfrukt, pepper, kanel og en nydelig, lett sødme. Bløt frukt, med dyp og mørk, purpur kjerne. Tett struktur. Nydelig munnfølelse; rik og definert, med deilig frukt. Fyldig, men elegant. Lang, så lang ettersmak, med hint av smør, og en deilig bærsødme. Nydelig, rik, og elegant vin.

 Tasted by St Paul on 5/9/2012 & rated 97 points: The normal green nose that very often is the case with DRC´s Richebourg but in the mouth there is an explosion of lovely Vosne spices and blue and red fruit. Very Richebourg like with its soft almost velvet structure. A lot of power though. Great length. Big wine. (7023 views)
 Tasted by Ramberg on 5/8/2012 & rated 97 points: Tasted at the DRC tasting against the rest of the 2009 line up.
The color is deep and dark.
On the nose its green and have some (allot) of smoke tones.
The taste is long, deep and powerful, with generous & ripe dark fruits.
The wine is incredibly soft but yet deep and complex, and the taste just goes on and on forever.
It has a certain dignified coolness to the deep taste that I have not experienced before.
It does have a bit of stalk taste present, but this just ads and extra and interesting layer to it.
A brilliant wine that will develop into something even bigger! (6799 views)
 Tasted by Vintomas on 5/8/2012 & rated 94 points: DRC 2009 tasting (Operakällaren, Stockholm): Medium red colour. Dark and some red berries, noticeable minerality, some mint, discrete liquorice notes with hints of tar and animal notes, a touch of herbal character. Initially a closed nose that hints at hidden power, but it grew in the glass and then also showed more toasted oak barrel notes. Dark berries on the palate, some sweetness of fruit in the attack, very mineral mid-palate, powerful but well integrated tannin. Definitely young, great potential, 94+

Today, Richebourg 09 is a little more “difficult” than DRC Romanée-Saint-Vivant 09, but it could possibly have greater potential for development. (6357 views)

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.

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.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
