A much more restrained even taciturn nose that is actually quite ripe spicy fresh and diaphanous features primarily floral infused red berry mineral and Asian spice aromas that merge gracefully into supple round and tautly muscled broad-shouldered flavors that are almost as pure as those of the RSV all wrapped in a detailed focused and almost painfully intense finish brimming with minerality and striking length. This is a karate champion of a wine that isn't especially big but the power of the punch is hard to believe.

Not a fat wine but classy and suave with terrific peppery minerally lift in the middle palate. With aeration this classically dry wine showed a stronger soil component and mounting power. Finishes with superb breadth and an impression of weightlessness. I might have initially mistaken this for the RSV-and vice-versa-had I tasted these blind but this is ultimately the more powerful wine. 93(+?) points

The 2007 Richebourg Grand Cru from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a wine that is "open for business" like many 2007s that decided that there is little point in waiting to please wine lovers.

The 2007 Richebourg Grand Cru from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a wine that is "open for business" like many 2007s that decided that there is little point in waiting to please wine lovers. The color gives a lot away. Compared to a dozen other Richebourg, this was the palest in color by far - though looks can be deceptive, especially here. The aromatics still show the stem addition quite conspicuously, although I noticed that these aromas, which are almost ash-like, subside with continued aeration over 40-45 minutes. The palate is medium-bodied with tart red cherry and raspberry fruit, a fine line of acidity and wonderful transparency. I would not hold it up as an exemplar of Richebourg, rather a Grand Cru that is just delicious to drink at the moment. Something I did notice was how it coalesced and gained weight with aeration, so despite its paleness, do not fear decanting this Richebourg for 30 minutes. - Neal Martin
