Community Tasting Notes (average 93.7 pts. and median of 94 pts. in 16 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/28/2015 & rated 94 points: La Paulée de New York Gala Dinner (Metropolitan Pavilion - New York NY): Opened at Paulee. Fill approx 4 cm. Lots of mature, ripe black and red berry with lots of cooked mushroom and sweet spice. Very long. Lots of nuance. (945 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 2/28/2015 & rated 94 points: La Paulée de New York Gala Dinner (Metropolitan Pavilion - New York NY): Tasting, brief note. Kind of ridiculous getting to try two bottles of DRC 1976 Richebourg in the same evening. This was was fresher with more/bigger red fruit, but I thought it had slightly less weight and complexity. (1031 views)
 Tasted by joshbryer on 2/12/2015: Bricking, terrible nose, unfortunate I think. On the palate a completely different story. Kaleidascope of sweet fruit with great depth. A dichotomy. Almost gone, lucky to catch it. (849 views)
 Tasted by fatfishzsy on 12/7/2014 & rated 95 points: 砖红,干玫瑰花,山楂汤,甘草,入口柔媚平衡,回味悠长,口中香气向上漂浮

 Tasted by cortoncharlie on 8/13/2013 & rated 92 points: Typhoon Squad at the Wine Vault: Great looking bottle with good levels. Color was browning and had a delicate nose. Flowers, leather, tobacco and shrooms. Everything you would expect and I thought it was reflective of the vintage. Faded after 30mins. (3020 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 6/12/2012 & rated 95 points: Farewell to a Great Restaurant (Charlie Trotter's - Chicago IL): From magnum. An exceptional 1976, the best I can ever recall having. Aromas of brown sugar, brown baking spice, roses, leather and well reduced mushrooms. Fully mature fruit on palate, everything in incredible harmony. Long, clean and elegant finish. (4326 views)
 Tasted by MatthewF on 6/12/2012: Farewell Dinner (Charlie Trotter's, Chicago IL): From 1.5L. Huge spice on the nose and palate. Mostly red fruit with some dried floral and earth tones coming through as well. Fully mature and drinking wonderful. Great balance and length. (3764 views)
 Tasted by bbrantley on 4/30/2011: After crumbled cork this started out slightly musty, but that blew away quickly (no decant). Got more expansive and rounded out as we drank the bottle. Beautiful aromas of spicy fruit and tea. Smooth on the palate with freshness but no noticeable tannic grip. Very pretty. (3891 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 2/18/2011 & rated 93 points: DRC La Tâche, Richebourg, other great Richebourgs and Chambertins (Martin Weiner's home in Westwood, Los Angeles, California): Light bricked red color with five millimeter clear meniscus; nice cigar box, tobacco, tart orange nose; tasty, tart orange, tobacco, cigar box palate with smoke and firm tannins; long finish (2926 views)
 Tasted by rwstorer on 11/21/2009 & rated 93 points: Light redish brown in color with a gorgeous nose of game and a slight raisin. Very balanced with mature red fruits. Seems like the finish will go for ever. Great wine. (3406 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 11/20/2009 & rated 91 points: Martin Weiner Grand Cru Burgundy Tasting (DRCs, Anne Gros, Leroy) (Martin Weiner's home in Westwood, Los Angeles, California): Very light red orange color with pale meniscus; musty nose, touch of TCA; mature, tart red fruit, roses palate with good structure; medium finish (2668 views)
 Tasted by Vinomane on 3/15/2009 & rated 95 points: Despite a low fill and palish color, perfectly sound and still (barely) at peak. From tasting this alongside such classics as 1962 and 1971 La Tache, I know
it's not really a 95-point wine. But tonight, drunk on its own with a rack of Colorado lamb, this seems as good as Burgundy can get.
More essences fused in that nose than I can possibly isolate; classic Vosne spice blossoming on the palate; great length on the finish.
Unless in magnum perfectly cellared, drink now. (2408 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 2/13/2009 & rated 93 points: Martin Weiner Burgundy Extravaganza (La Tache, Richebourg, Bonnes Mares, Clos de la Roche) (Chez Weiner, Westwood, California): Light medium orange color with ruby lights and clear meniscus; appealing mature spice box, leather and tobacco nose; tasty, mature, mushroom, spice box and lamb jus palate; medium-plus finish (3585 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 5/16/2008 & rated 93 points: Martin Weiner Tasting Dinner: Dugat, Leroy, A.F. Gros and friends great Cotes de Nuits Burgundies (Martin Weiner's home in Westwood, Los Angeles, California): Light brick red color with clear meniscus; chaptalized, mushroom and chlorine nose; mature, savory, tart plum, tart cherry palate, long past its prime; medium-plus finish (might seem a high rating given my description, but the complexity on the palate led me to give it that score) (2961 views)
 Tasted by johnh1001 on 5/8/2008 & rated 95 points: Opened in the cellar of our good friends in Toulouse. My birth year and really a treat. Fully mature nose of roses, leather, dried tea leaves, mushrooms, earth and soy sauce. The palate matched with many layers and some iron notes. Very long, lingering finish. So much going on here. Was still going strong after two hours. (1141 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 11/4/2005 & rated 95 points: Martin Weiner Richebourg and Romanee St. Vivant Tasting Dinner - 1961-2002 (Martin Weiner's home in Westwood, Los Angeles, California): Gorgeous floral, cigar box nose; powerful, lovely, lean, meaty, elegant palate; long finish (2737 views)

Vintage Tastings, DRC Weekend (7/6/2009)
(DRC Richebourg) We traveled back in time rather quickly with our last Richebourg pairing for the weekend. The 1976 DRC Richebourg was noticeably mature with warm aromas of menthol, olive, game and ‘caramel’ per Bipin. There were also secondary aromas of garden and sweet bouillon. Its beefy, dirty flavors were browned and autumnal, with more bouillon emerging. While it only lasted about thirty minutes in the glass, it had a fleshy character and an open, spicy citricity. Someone keenly remarked how ‘sometimes it is nice to have wines where you don’t have to say it will get better’  93 points

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.
