Tasting Notes

I was blown away by the 1999 Richebourg, an extraordinary, dense ruby/purple-colored offering. It boasts a magnificent perfume of framboise, blackberries, and currants as well as a sweet, buttery woody component underlying black and red fruit flavors kissed by toasty oak. In the mouth, gamy, fleshy characteristics intertwined with violets, licorice, and black fruits is liqueur-like. Ripe, rich, and dense, with spectacular purity and equilibrium, this mind-boggling effort should be at its peak in 2-4 years, and last for 15-20

Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, October 2003

Richebourg 1999 – Magnificent the 1999 Richebourg has a saturated, dark ruby colour. It explodes from the glass with loads of super-ripe,dark fruits including blackberries,cassis,plums and black cherries. This dense, plush and broad wine has prodigious depth to its roasted red and black fruit flavoured personality. A Myriad of spices can be found in its chewy-textured, full-bodied, highly concentrated, powerful character. Its extraordinary long finish is dominated by fruit, yet copious quantities of sweet and supple tannin can be discerned, Projected maturity 2006-2018.
