1991 Richebourg

Domaine de la Romanee-Conti

flagBurgundy / France

The 1991 Richebourg is not revealing its normal richness and power. The samples I saw were dominated by sweet vanillin and toasty new oak scents intermingled with aromas of cassis. Medium-bodied, with excellent richness and a long, moderately tannic finish, this wine (as virtually all the DRC wines do) will put on considerable weight as it ages. Drink it between 1998-2012. NOTE: Prices have not been released. those listed are estimated based on recent vintages. As did most Burgundy domaines, the DRC had exceptionally low yields in 1991, ranging from under 20 hectoliters per hectare to a high of 26 hectoliters per hectare for the Grands Echezeaux. Unquestionably, all of these wines are successful and should age for two decades. Although the wines have already been bottled, they will not be released until late winter or early spring 1994, thus prices have not yet been established. NOTES ON THE 1992s FROM BARREL: While I cannot say the 1992s are superior to the 1991s, they are completely different in style. The 1992s are more approachable, supple, and come closest to resembling the superlative 1982s. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 90
