Violets, roses, raspberries, and red cherries emanate from the 2003 Richebourg. Full-bodied, deep, and hugely concentrated, it is muscular, firm and displays the firmest structure of the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti's 2003s. Soy sauce, tar, chocolate, and dark fruits are found in its focused, audacious personality. Its impressively persistent finish is studded with highly present tannin... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2003 Domiane de la Romanee Conti Richebourg - from Jay. Decanted one hour prior to pouring. Dark rich velvet ruby in colour. Cracked green olives and first press olive oil on the nose initially which soon blew off to expose blackberries, black currant, plum and Asian spice. Opulent attack which carries through into a profoundly concentrated mid palette of dark fruits and velvety tannins with thick sap. This wine is overwhelmingly concentrated on the mid palette with a very lush texture with incredible concentration of fruit. The finish is both long and seamless and certainly not lacking in structure despite the nature of the vintage with the tannins displaying a degree of structure that I had not anticipated. A formidable wine which is developing much better than I would have expected for a 2003. This is the first bottle that I have had since 2008 and during this time the wine has far surpassed my expectations. For those who enjoy big fruit-forward Burgundy wines at a young age this Richebourg is approachable but I think patience is warranted in order to get the most out of this wine. Drink 2020 to 2045.
