The 2007 Richebourg Grand Cru from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is a wine that is "open for business" like many 2007s that decided that there is little point in waiting to please wine lovers. The color gives a lot away. Compared to a dozen other Richebourg, this was the palest in color by far - though looks can be deceptive, especially here. The aromatics still show the stem addition quite conspicuously, although I noticed that these aromas, which are almost ash-like, subside with continued aeration over 40-45 minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with tart red cherry and raspberry fruit, a fine line of acidity and wonderful transparency. I would not hold it up as an exemplar of Richebourg, rather a Grand Cru that is just delicious to drink at the moment. Something I did notice was how it coalesced and gained weight with aeration, so despite its paleness, do not fear decanting this Richebourg for 30 minutes. Nov 2015, www.robertparker.com
