Critical Acclaim
99 Points by Jasper Morris
Deep dense imperial purple. And what a sunburst of fruit on the nose! How to find the words, some raspberry, some strawberry, but each little note of fruit builds on the last, splendid balance. The structure is hidden behind, but there is enough acidity showing and very finely balanced tannins. This will make a very distinguished Richebourg.
Barrel Sample: 95-99

97 Points by Decanter
The 0.32ha parcel of Richebourg was planted in 1949, between Thibault Liger-Belair and Mongeard-Mugneret, up the slope from Hudelot-Noëllat. The old vines and gentle extraction deliver a marvellously sensual fruit character here, brimming with aromas of exotic spice and floral notes, plus a richness and tannic grip on the palate which comes out with a bit of time. Setting this wine apart is an overriding impression of understated elegance and finesse.

96 Points by
An ultra-spicy, ripe, elegant and admirably pure nose offers up even fresher notes of dark berries, sandalwood and tea along with plenty of floral influence that includes violet, rose petal and acacia. There is outstanding richness and intensity to the wonderfully tension-filled full-bodied, concentrated and saline-inflected flavors that possess seriously good power on the tautly muscular finish that displays stunningly good length. This is very classy but also ultra-serious and this is very much a 'buy and forget you own it' jewel.
