Estate Notes

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti's 1971 Richebourg was a great vintage and a heavenly experience for those with the rare opportunity to taste this wine.

Romanée Conti is Burgundy’s greatest producer, and its exceptionally rare wines are amongst the most sought-after and expensive in the world. Such is its fame, that Burgundians often refer to it simply as the ‘the Domaine’, and it owns incredibly valuable vineyards in each of Burgundy’s red wine Grand Crus.

Romanée Conti’s success is built on low yields and late harvests that maximise fruit concentration.

Reviews

"...one of the greatest Burgundies I have ever had the privilege of drinking. The 1971 Richebourg evokes vivid memories of that wine. Although it is not as profound, the Richebourg offers notable sensuality and captivating allure from the very first taste. Blood orange, cranberry, mint, rose petal and anise add shades of nuance to this ethereal, utterly sublime Burgundy." Antonio Galloni

"...medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, hints of dried orange peel infusing the black and red fruit, all with impressive energy considering that this is now the same age as yours truly. Perhaps I found more breeding on the aforementioned Grands Echézeaux, and yet this is still a gorgeous mature Burgundy that will continue to give immense pleasure over the next decade for those privileged with the experience." eRobertParker.com
