Vinous – 96
The 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru has a supremely well-defined bouquet of vibrant red cherries, crushed strawberry, orange zest and crushed stone, developing more floral scents with time and conveying wonderful breeding and real panache. The extremely well balanced palate reveals layers of red berry fruit, lightly spiced, with just a subtle tang of marmalade toward the finish. Impressive in terms of weight and body, this deserves several years in bottle. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2027-2060

Destemmed. Tank sample. Very flatteringly rich and heady. Really dense and dramatic. This wine positively soars. Doesn’t seem to be the produce of cellar but of vineyard. Well done!
