    January 1, 2019 - A beautiful and elegant bottle nearing it’s peak of evolution for my palate. Crisp red fruits, secondary characteristics yet still primary, ethereal and balanced. Long, complex, semi-spicy finish. Tasted side by side with DRC Vosne Romanee 1er Cru 2009 which in comparison was darker with plenty of youthful vigor and oak. The 2001 Richebourg was for me one of the wines of the night which included an equally thrilling 1999 Meo Camuzet le Cros Parantoux that followed. The Richebourg was purchased at release from Win Wilson’s personal allocation along with Dujac 2001 Clos de la Roche and Clos St. Denis, both of which were poured side by side two weeks prior. As they were from the outset, the lesser acclaimed 2001 (in comparison to 2002) Red burgundies continue to impress for their detail and nuance, more transparent to their sources and less powerful and ripe than the heralded 2002s. Sadly both vintages are depleted in my modest collection of older Burgundy.

    October 20, 2018 - 2001 vs 2002 DRC tasting with a few others; 10/20/2018-10/21/2018 (Marcel's by Robert Wiedmaier, DC and Bryan's house): Slightly austere nose displaying subtle sweet red fruit, raspberry candy, strawberry jam, caramel, a hint of stem, rose, cinnamon, clove, tiequayin tea, smoke meat and earth. Fully integrated palate, slightly coiled red fruit, silky and polished, strong acidity and earthy mineral, fine tannins and a medium to long sweet red fruit driven finish with tea and clove at the end. The bottle is correct but surprisingly tight and unyielding.

    September 5, 2018 - DRC blind night. Tasted blind in the line up of 4 x 2001 Grand Crus.
    Appearance slight cloudiness, pale intensity, garnet colour. Legs.
    Nose is not clean, with slight barnyardy animal brett, wild forest floor, earth, dark red cherries, dark herbs, smoke, joss stick incense, tea leaves with more air. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium alcohol (13%), fine lick of medium+ tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of savoury dark earth, dark red cherries, wild ripe strawberries, sweet tea leaves, smoked meat, sawdust. So many things going on! A smorgasbord of flavours in the mouth. So damm bloody complex. Very long finish.
    Outstanding quality. In drinking window already. Only needed an hour of air in bottle and this was firing the whole night.
    In the blind line-up, a top-tier Grand Cru for sure I was guessing, but wasn't sure if this was the DRC Richebourg. Truly good, but as always, the price to pay just to drink this is way too much.
    Bottle number 04649.

    April 24, 2018 - DRC on 24 April 2018 (Le Restaurant, Moscow): 97/100

    Dark and a notch cloudy Richebourg, pensive and melancholic.

    Classic burnt notes somewhat subdued, with mint, menthol, and dark berries, juicy yet a bit jammy.

    Looks overly aged for its humble seventeen, as if it were a teenage boy who matured too fast - but now it’s at the top of its prime, quiet and winking slyly.

    I wouldn’t keep it for long.

    DRC night at Le Restaurant, 24 April 2018

Burgundy-Report

  • By Bill Nanson
    7/1/2004 (link)

    (Romanée-Conti Richebourg) Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is of faintly alcoholic red cherry that overlays a spicy base. In the mouth, concentrated essence of dried fruits (shouldn't write that - the next might be even more concentrated). The tannins are close to be completely covered by the fruit, the finish evidently more harmonious than the last tasting. Whilst this doesn't quite have that 'x-factor' displayed by the Romanée-Saint-Vivant it now shows the makings of a super wine.

  • By Bill Nanson

    (Romanée-Conti Richebourg) Less deep colour than the Romanée-St-Vivant - but marginally. The nose has a more black aspect to the fruit, subtle aspects from the stems and quite high toned. Doesn't seem to develop in the glass to the same extent as the others, but there's still some change with the oak spice becoming more pronounced and a little more meaty. The palate has really good depth and fat, similar to the RSV, the quality and fineness of the tannin shining through - more so than the previous wines. The finish is very long, but seems more oak than wine. Has the depth of the Grands Échézeaux but shows in a more backward way - lovely smooth coating on the teeth though. A wine that's not all joined-up yet, oak, fruit and oak but not a 'whole' wine just yet.
