- Tasting Notes
Aromas of red currant, rose petal, lavender, violet and Asian-style tea precede the succulent and refined flavors that are notably stony while exhibiting excellent persistence on the bright and balanced but very firm and serious finale. This is finer and classier than the Grands Ech but not necessarily more complex, at least not today.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 92-95
The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru comes from a single parcel within Les Verroilles that was picked on 30 September and includes 45% whole-bunch fruit and 40% new oak. It has a very classy bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, sous bois and morels, all very well defined and endowed with a sense of grandeur. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, lovely focus and tension with veins of spice toward the finish. It does not possess the weight and substance of a completely untroubled growing season, yet there is class interwoven into every pore of this wine.
