DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Richebourg 1998
WA96-98: A multi-dimensional nose explodes from the glass: raspberry, cassis and a touch of damson. A massive powerful palate - almost monolithic. Perfect acidity. Dense black fruit sprinkled with spice. Lasts forever. At the agency tasting this was my pick of the 1998 DRC wines...Tasted February 2001.
