"The 2000 Richebourg Grand Cru from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti is a vintage that I have not tasted since just after bottling. (As I wrote recently, the millennial Burgundy reds, especially from the Côte de Nuits, are currently performing above expectations.) Now showing a little bricking on the rim, it boasts an engaging and transparent bouquet, tinctured with the green bell pepper trait common in this vintage. I admired its conspicuous undergrowth element although others might perceive it as a weakness. The palate is atypical for a Richebourg in terms of lacking the backbone of this Grand Cru, and in some ways it comes across more like a Romanée-Saint-Vivant. Sour red cherries, red currant and wild strawberry slowly give way to secondary notes of tobacco and more of that bell pepper. It is a nimble Richebourg that is a point, though it should give another 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure." - Neal Martin, Vinous (August 2019)
