DOMAINE DE LA ROMANÉE-CONTI, 2015

RICHEBOURG

“The 2015 Richebourg Grand Cru is very good indeed, offering up a pure and surprisingly expressive nose of strawberry, dried rose, plum preserve, roast squab, raw cocoa and incipient rich soil tones, framed by some nutty new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, multidimensional and rich, sweet fruit playing in counterpoint with sapid, savory nuance. This Richebourg is denser at the core and less expensive than the corresponding Romanée-St-Vivant, and though the grain of its tannins is similar, their impact is more assertive and muscular.” Robert Parker 96/100

Histoire et anecdotes

The most popular estate of the region, the Romanée-Conti estate, has a long history that started in the 13th century when the priors planted the first vines. The name “Romanée” appeared for the first time in 1651. In 1794, the estate was named “Romanée Conty” after having belonged to Prince Louis-François de Bourbon-Conti. Then, in 1869, the estate was bought by Jacques-Marie Duvault and was then passed down to the Villaine family through his great-grandson. The Leroy family has been co-owner since 1942.
