INFORMATION OF INTEREST DRC Richebourg 2013
Colour: Ruby red and tile hues, with a light layer.
Aroma: Good intensity with reminiscences of his time in barrels in the first term (toast, coffee, cocoa, cedar), along with memories of red fruit.
Taste: Tasty, lively, polished pitch and fruity, spicy with a pleasant finish and lingering aftertaste.
It will be perfect served with dishes of an average taste power, as could be red meats (beef tenderloin with mushroom sauce) or not very robust stews or spicy. We can also serve with a selection of cheeses.
We are facing a 1.8-acre vineyard in the heart of the Côte de Nuits - under the name of La Romanée-Conti- whose boundaries have remained unchanged for the past 4 centuries. Posted questioned in the 50s, because of the need to replant the vineyard, the property has been recovered soon noble height and visibility.
From the selection of varieties to the bottled without air or filtration, nothing is neglected, to get great wines of ageing: long fermentation and ageing in new oak barrels. The man's hand here is, therefore, omnipresent, but here are fond of saying that "wines are those made alone." In addition, it performs a selection based on the vintage: for this reason did not turn out the Romanée-Conti in 1950 and the Echézeaux in 1965.
The property belongs to two families and is directed by their representatives Aubert de Villaine and Henry Frédéric Roch, the latter's successor Marcelle (Lalou) Bize-Leroy in 1992.
