Year Wine Name Rating Maturity 1978Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg98データなしWine Journal #0313 (2013-03-31)Tasted at “The Sampler” icon tasting in London. Wow!!! The Richebourg ’78 has an ethereal, haunting bouquet of red berry fruit, bayleaf, a puff of smoke and graphite. It blossoms with aeration and offers incredible purity and minerality that ranks this as one of the finest DRC wines that I have experienced. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity; plenty of tart red fruit, citrus peel and crushed stone ? just pure effervescent “Pinote”. There is a steeliness on the finish that shows great length and verve. Stunning, so stunning that is pips a bottle of La Tache ’78 tasted a few weeks later. It is that good. Tasted December 2012.

ロバート・パーカー 評点:100  とてつもないリシュブール1999年は、緑いっぱいまで濃い暗いルビー色を呈している。グラスに注ぐと、ブラックベリー、カシス、プラムとブラックチェリーを始めとした、大量の超熟したダークフルーツが弾け出す。この濃厚でフラシ天のように滑らかな、幅のあるワインは、けた外れの深みをそのローストした赤や黒果実の風味の特徴に持つ。噛み応えのある舌触りの、フルボディの、非常に凝縮感のある、パワフルな特徴の中に、おびただしいスパイスが見つけられる。並外れて余韻の長いフィニッシュは果実味が主体となっているが、大量の甘い、しなやかなタンニンも判別できる。 飲み頃予想:2006~2018年 ロバート・M・パーカーJr.著『世界の極上ワイン』より ROBERT M. PARKER,JR.  ★★★★★ RATING:100points Magnificent,the 1999 Richbourg has a saturated,dark ruby color.It explodes from the glass with loads of superripe dark fruits,including blackberries,cassis,plums,and black cherries. This dense,plush,and broad wine has prodigious depth to its roasted red and black fruit-flavored personality. A myriad of spices can be found in its chewy-textured,full-bodied,highly concentrated,powerful character. Its extraordinarily long finish is dominated by fruit,yet copious quantities of sweet and supple tannin can be discerned. Anticipated maturity:2006-2018

2007 リシュブールRichebourgドメーヌドラロマネコンティ 100%新品,大得価

Year Wine Name Rating Maturity 2007 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 91 now-2020 Wine Advocate #189 (2010-06-29) Game, musk, Latakia tobacco, and dark berries in the nose of the Domaine’s 2007 Richebourg foreshadow flavors of salted tart black fruits, roasted game, and hints of black pepper and tar, all underlain by mouth-coating, faintly gum-numbing if fine-grained, tannins. After the charm of the Echezeaux, imposing sweetness of the Grands-Echezeaux, and savory mystery of the Romanee-St.-Vivant, I confess I may be at fault in not conceiving an inspiring role to assign this faintly Syrah-like Richebourg. It displays impressive amplitude, ripeness, and sheer grip ? especially for its vintage ? but is slightly ungainly (as it was earlier in barrel), if perhaps merely adolescently so. I would (in an ideal world, of course!) want to revisit this in 3-4 years, though I am sure it is built to last for well more than a decade. Domaine de La Romanee-Conti director Aubert de Villaine perceives both the estate’s 2008 and 2007 collections as vins de garde, and I can’t argue with that assessment, even though when I first tasted the 2007s ? soon after they had come out of malo ? I harbored reservations, wondering whether to interpret de Villaine’s description of them as “ethereal” to read “ephemeral.” He says holding back the usual 5% share of production for the Domaine’s own cellar was difficult in the greatly reduced 2008 vintage, and that he is already regretting not having arranged to bottle a larger share in magnum. He still had time when I visited in April to reconsider the bottle format for three appellations, which were the only ones I was able to taste, since De Villaine is loathe to show wines in the first 9-12 months after bottling. (I’ll report on the full 2008 collection from bottle at a later date.) If the 2007s here were unusual for that vintage in the degree to which they gained stature in the course of elevage, such behavior was normal when it came to 2008, so that I was not surprised to hear de Villaine remark on a new-found degree of confidence in the stature of that collection. To an even greater degree than in most vintages, success in 2007 and 2008 came down to meticulousness at every stage; to quality of vine material; and to location, in all of which respects no estate in Burgundy has any advantage over the Domaine de La Romanee-Conti. Interestingly, the estate lingered no longer over the picking of their 2008s ? from the first of the La Tache on September 27 to the last of the Echezeaux on October 6 ? than they had over the 2007s, which were picked from September 1-11. The inclusion of stems was lowered to less than half in 2007, incidentally, but in 2008 was typically closer to three-quarters. Vendange entier is a technique not only time-honored and in continuous use at the Domaine de La Romanee-Conti (even when it fell out of favor at most Burgundy estates in the waning 20th century), but one which de Villaine and cellarmaster Bernard Noblet have subjected to repeated testing, so as to establish in any given vintage the right balance between 100% de-stemmed (“which lacks something by way of complexity,” says de Villaine) and 100% (“which can be too marked by the stems,” he continues).

Year Wine Name Rating Maturity 2007 Domaine de la Romanee Conti Richebourg 91 now-2020 Wine Advocate #189 (2010-06-29) Game, musk, Latakia tobacco, and dark berries in the nose of the Domaine’s 2007 Richebourg foreshadow flavors of salted tart black fruits, roasted game, and hints of black pepper and tar, all underlain by mouth-coating, faintly gum-numbing if fine-grained, tannins. After the charm of the Echezeaux, imposing sweetness of the Grands-Echezeaux, and savory mystery of the Romanee-St.-Vivant, I confess I may be at fault in not conceiving an inspiring role to assign this faintly Syrah-like Richebourg. It displays impressive amplitude, ripeness, and sheer grip ? especially for its vintage ? but is slightly ungainly (as it was earlier in barrel), if perhaps merely adolescently so. I would (in an ideal world, of course!) want to revisit this in 3-4 years, though I am sure it is built to last for well more than a decade. Domaine de La Romanee-Conti director Aubert de Villaine perceives both the estate’s 2008 and 2007 collections as vins de garde, and I can’t argue with that assessment, even though when I first tasted the 2007s ? soon after they had come out of malo ? I harbored reservations, wondering whether to interpret de Villaine’s description of them as “ethereal” to read “ephemeral.” He says holding back the usual 5% share of production for the Domaine’s own cellar was difficult in the greatly reduced 2008 vintage, and that he is already regretting not having arranged to bottle a larger share in magnum. He still had time when I visited in April to reconsider the bottle format for three appellations, which were the only ones I was able to taste, since De Villaine is loathe to show wines in the first 9-12 months after bottling. (I’ll report on the full 2008 collection from bottle at a later date.) If the 2007s here were unusual for that vintage in the degree to which they gained stature in the course of elevage, such behavior was normal when it came to 2008, so that I was not surprised to hear de Villaine remark on a new-found degree of confidence in the stature of that collection. To an even greater degree than in most vintages, success in 2007 and 2008 came down to meticulousness at every stage; to quality of vine material; and to location, in all of which respects no estate in Burgundy has any advantage over the Domaine de La Romanee-Conti. Interestingly, the estate lingered no longer over the picking of their 2008s ? from the first of the La Tache on September 27 to the last of the Echezeaux on October 6 ? than they had over the 2007s, which were picked from September 1-11. The inclusion of stems was lowered to less than half in 2007, incidentally, but in 2008 was typically closer to three-quarters. Vendange entier is a technique not only time-honored and in continuous use at the Domaine de La Romanee-Conti (even when it fell out of favor at most Burgundy estates in the waning 20th century), but one which de Villaine and cellarmaster Bernard Noblet have subjected to repeated testing, so as to establish in any given vintage the right balance between 100% de-stemmed (“which lacks something by way of complexity,” says de Villaine) and 100% (“which can be too marked by the stems,” he continues).
