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.

Smoky aromas set the scene for a complex, fascinating wine. Like so many 2004s, it is striking for the purity of its fruit. And if there is a hint of green in the tannins, this certainly doesn't do the wine any harm. It's more that it shows how much time it needs to mature. Aftertaste is fresh.
