Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, Jan 2018,
    Score: 96

    In much the same fashion as the Clos de Vougeot this is inexpressive to the point of being almost mute and it requires considerable agitation to coax the intensely floral-suffused aromas of spicy tea and dark berries to appear. There is stunningly good power and intensity to the very, make that very, very, backward broad-shouldered flavors that brim with both buckets of dry extract and an almost pungent minerality on the precise, dusty and massively long finish. I appreciate that I sometimes probably sound like a broken record with my "absolutely must have patience" comments but this is a wine that would be largely pointless to buy without the express intention of cellaring it for at least 12 to 15 years and it should richly reward 20 to 25. In a word, brilliant. 96/100 DRINK 2035+

    Stephen Tanzer, Jan 2017,
    Score: 93-96

    (25% vendange entier for the first time; 55% new oak; 25 hectoliters per hectare produced): Dark red. A touch of whole-cluster reduction to the aromas of blackberry, soy sauce and licorice. Enters the mouth sweet, then builds and expands on the mid-palate, displaying an almost chocolatey ripeness to the very broad, primary, fine-grained flavors of black raspberry and salty minerality. Most impressive today on the crescendo of a back end, where the wine opens out dramatically and builds inexorably, displaying major tannins but no hardness. Vinification with a percentage of whole clusters "opens some doors" for Richebourg, said Liger-Belair, noting that this cuvée tended to be very closed in past vintages. 93-96 / 100
