(from vines that abut those of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in Richebourg proper). Here the reduction is present also but at least there is some spiciness in evidence. There is excellent richness and muscle to the bigbodied and impressively vibrant medium weight plus flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration before culminating in a palate staining and magnificently long finish. There is power here but overall this is more a Riche of elegance than brawn. I very much like the potential but caution compels me to point out that the reduction is a concern though again with this wine it seems less like a permanent problem. 95?/2025+
