    (Romanée-Conti Richebourg) A very low yield this year, not much more produced than Romanée-Conti. It’s a rather narrow nose compared to the others, but it’s like cliff-diving, it’s just so deep. Swirling fills some of the gaps, as does extended time in the glass – it never loses that depth though. Whilst I loved the RSV I have to say that this wine is frankly a tour-de-force in the mouth, nothing hard, great balance but every aspect is on a fantastic level – from first impression right through the mid-palate to the finish. In both 2000 and 2001 I preferred the RSV and despite my ‘bias’ in this respect I have to give the rosette to this wine in 2002 – bravo – fabulous, measured concentration…

    (DRC Richebourg) It was a step up as the fruit was much more in your face . thick, rich and ripe with meaty, plummy and smoky aromas along with vanilla and sweet fruit on the blackberry and plum side. The nose had gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous fruit. It was stunning. There was a touch of cinnamon, and someone keenly observed it .stood out for its amplitude and opulence.. The palate was deliciously rusty, with great length and style to its acids, and tannins that make you lick the roof of your mouth but not smack your lips. There was almost perfect sweetness to the wine on the palate and its black fruit, a fruit only matched later by the Romanee Conti itself. A touch of leather rounded out its palate

    (DRC Richebourg) This nose was screaming. Hard to believe but this was even more aromatic than the RSV. Lots of earth. Lots of mineral. Lots of floral. Lots of fresh mint. More primal and animal than the others before it. Just amazing. Super concentrated and very powerful as Richebourg usually is. The RSV was more elegant but this had power and major structure. Also it was the most exotic wine of the day so far. Profound and another one for the long haul.
