Richebourg, Grand Cru, Domaine Romanée Conti 2012

Côte de Nuits, Burgundy

"While not as strong as it was from cask there is still some residual post-bottling reduction present and while I hope that very few bottles of this will be popped any time soon in the interest of "science", if they are, then I would strongly suggest decanting them for an hour or two first. The supporting structural elements are slightly riper than those of the Romanée St. Vivant with an abundant minerality adding lift to the broad-shouldered, powerful and impressively well-concentrated flavors that possess a sappy mouth feel. In much the same fashion the intensity of the massively long finish is borderline painful while displaying superb depth of material. In the past 5 vintages it has been neck and neck between the Riche and the Romanée St. Vivant in terms of which is the better wine but in 2012 it appears that the Riche may have the barest of edges."
