Description

Note: from Richebourg proper

Tasting note: This is quite floral though the nose is cool and very restrained and only aggressive swirling liberates a broad array of spice, black fruit liqueur and red currant aromas. The mineral-inflected large-scaled and muscular flavors possess a suave mouth feel on the driving, intense and gorgeously well-balanced finish that just goes on and on. This is very classy juice though note that it is not as forward as the 2011 and will require plenty of time. 95 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Richebourg 2011 from Etienne Grivot has a splendid bouquet with ripe, delineated raspberry, wild strawberry and red plum scents that are suffused with fine minerality. This just gets more and more complex in the glass. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, crisp acidity and vibrant raspberry and cranberry fruit. It is nicely structured, which at the moment lends it a more masculine personality, but everything here is in its right place and there is precision all the way to the precise and tensile finish. Which 2011 Burgundy got the highest average score out of 250 tasted blind? This one. 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2011 Richebourg is on an entirely other level from the previous grand crus. An explosive, full-bodied wine, the Richebourg bursts from the glass with blue and black fruits, violets and white pepper. A complex, multi-dimensional wine, the Richebourg boasts stunning depth and power married to pure elegance. Today it is vibrant, intense and riveting. This is a breathtaking wine from the Grivot family. 94-96 points Vinous
