Tasting Notes

Don't miss!
Reduction presently dominates the nose though there is terrific verve and freshness to the big-bodied, tautly muscular and impressively concentrated flavors that possess an almost painful intensity on the very firmly structured finish that also delivers breathtaking length. Like the Cros it's clear that this is going to require prolonged cellaring yet there is so much dry extract that I suspect that the '16 Richebourg could be approached after only 7 to 8 years though it will very like need close to 20 to reach its full apogee. In a word, brilliant. Drink: 2033+

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (69), January 2018

The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru has a feisty, forward and intense bouquet that maybe does not quite deliver the panache of the Cros Parantoux. It almost feels as if it has to exert itself upon the senses in order to establish its credentials, whereas you would like more effortlessness. The palate is assuredly dense and structured. Certainly, it is one of the more opaque Richebourg wines that I tasted from barrel, though at present I would be seeking a touch more finesse and precision on the sinewy finish to this burly Richebourg. I still expect it to land toward the top of my banded score. 2023 - 2045
