Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Richebourg 2004

The Richebourg 2004 from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is quite extrovert and matured wine. In the bouquet lovely red fruit with notes of sous-bois, violets and peony rose – hints of orange and tar. On the palate quite intense openly knit fruit and minerality – expressive with a good power and balance. The finish is long and quite muscular – so typical for the terroir. The fruit is slightly rustic in the finish – indicating it’s not a top vintage. Nevertheless – love the energy and nerve in this wine – a very fine effort in this vintage.
