Tasting Notes

The 2015 Richebourg Grand Cru has a very intense bouquet, like many Richebourgs a little standoffish at first, though it soon opens up with powerful aromas of black cherries, anise, orange zest and wet stones. You still come away with the impression that you are only witnessing the tip of the aromatic iceberg. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannin, vibrant red and black fruit with hints of mandarin and balsamic. It crescendos with multilayered, mineral-rich black fruit with a healthy pinch of white pepper and an otherworldly prolonged aftertaste. Stunning. Neal Martin
