Aromas of cherries, blackberries, burning embers, exotic spices, violets and blood orange introduce the spectacular 2020 Richebourg Grand Cru, a full-bodied, velvety and enveloping wine that's deep and multidimensional, with lively acids, supple tannins and a long, resonant finish. Rich and concentrated, it's a brilliant wine in the making.
Gorgeous balanced mid purple. The nose has the heady qualities of this great vineyard but not the possible excesses of this vintage. Gets richer in the glass. Layers of fruit here, almost too much to understand in one go. Could just use a mini ounce of extra freshness perhaps, though that could of course be the sample. Tighter structure nonetheless.
