(est. $750-$950) Good dark red. Deeply pitched aromas of cassis, earth and truffle ("underground aromas while the Romanee-Saint-Vivant is more ethereal," says Villaine). Fat and broad in the mouth, with a strong earth-and-rocks character. Doesn't show quite the lift of the RSV but this is even sweeter. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. I suspect I'm catching this in an awkward stage.

Slightly more blueish purple than the Romanée St Vivant. Broad but less flattering on the nose than the RSV. Indeed it is slightly overshadowed by the RSV; I wonder whether the Domaine might in some years show the Richebourg before the RSV? More obviously 2004 than the RSB because a bit tighter and less obviously ripe with even the merest hint of green notes. This is a sinewy wine – more musclar than many Richebourgs. Fine, pure and extremely racy. Great refreshment value – certainly very, very different frim the RSV. Aerienne/ethereal. It should age well for it opened even in the glass but the acidity is particularly notable.

This is aromatic, revealing Asian spices and sandalwood. A less opulent Richebourg, yet plump in the context of the DRC '04s, offering red and black cherry, rose and a hint of black pepper flavors. Kicks into gear on the finish, with a long, spicy aftertaste.Non-blind 2004 DRC tasting (February 2007). Best from 2012 through 2028.
