At the heart of the commune of Vosne-Romanée, “Richebourg” is without a doubt one of the most reputed and sought-after Grand Crus in the Côte de Nuits. The appellation covers only 8 hectares (20 acres), with an annual production of merely 40,000 bottles. The hilliness of the nearby landscape formed by the Concoeur valley and the vines’ proximity to the parent rock are also are determining factors for the terroir’s influence on this Grand Cru.
Our Richebourg Grand Cru boasts elegant aromas of cocoa underpinned by a touch of smoke. The palate features lovely, supple tannins that provide pleasing depth, phenomenal fruity flavours and an exquisitely long finish reminiscent of cocoa. Nice length and highly aromatic.
Burghound - "This is both cooler and more restrained with its wonderfully nuanced nose of violet, anise, sandalwood, hoisin and dark pinot fruit scents. There is a beguiling sense of energy to the much more mineral-inflected and powerful flavors that culminate in a hugely long finish where once again a hint of warmth appears. This too is most impressive but it's even more structured and most of 20 years will be required before this reaches its peak. (93-95pts)"
