Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC) Richebourg Pinot Noir 1990

9.735 ratings on Delectable
$2949

The DRC produced splendid wines in 1990, and the Richebourg is close to reaching its plateau of maturity. A dark ruby color reveals lightening at the edge. The stunning aromatics offer intense aromas of spring flowers, black fruits, licorice, and toasty new oak. Fleshy and medium to full-bodied, with a velvety-textured palate, and sweet fruit, this smoky, rich, complex red Burgundy can be drunk now and over the next decade. Robert Parker

Was fabulous, and can still take a lot of bottle time ( 15-25 years)

1990 DRC Richebourg. HB w MnD and J&D B. J said this was his fave of the DRC's and it was drinking beautifully. Such a treat on a warm summer night. Last we drank this was almost a year ago, when we really thought this was spectacular. Tonight was the same- it was drinking perfectly. Beautiful brick color, balanced. We got note of dark fruit, mineral, and lots of forest floor- both earthy and a little funky. Spectacular.

1990 DRC Richebourg. Drank this alongside the 1990 Romanee St. Vivant at Melisse private room dinner. This wine is so luscious and rich, it blew the St. Vivant out of the water. We loved this wine.
