    Richebourg 2016
    Bottle (4)

    "An ultra-spicy, ripe, elegant and admirably pure nose offers up notes of dark berries, sandalwood, dried orange peel and tea along with plenty of floral influence. There is equally good breadth to the rich, intense and tension-filled full-bodied and stony flavors that possess excellent power and drive on the seductively textured, muscular and classy finish that is also very firmly structured. In a word, impressive." (96 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #73, Jan. 2019)

    "Bright ruby-red. More brooding on the nose than the Romanée-Saint-Vivant, conveying a medicinal cast to its aromas of dark berries, licorice pastille and violet. Boasts outstanding density and power but this penetrating wine shows a magically light touch and comes across as distinctly airy today. Not fleshy but delivers superb energy and cut. Quite different in style from the Romanée-Saint-Vivant but then these two grand crus typically go through phases during their élevage, so predicting their final shape and fruit/mineral balance is far more difficult than assessing their quality in the early going." (93-96 pts. Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Nov. 2017)
