Characteristics of the Richebourg Grand Cru :
A Richebourg can be jewels, draped with velvet or dark red pulling on the night, purple black. The colour is always intense and dense, bright and covered with coppery tints.
On the nose and young, the wine reveals aromas of musk and leather of Russia and nuances of sandalwood. It evolves into a hawthorn, and peach blossom. Two families of aromatic are distinguishable : the shades of lichen, undergrowth and mushrooms on the one hand; the notes of cherries, currants, cooked fruit or candied on the other hand.
In the mouth :
In his youth, he explodes. Intense, violent, he needs several years to become expansive and warm. Elegant and racy, it is capable of a long life and becomes the great years, the image of voluptuousness. Sometimes with more finesse than structure, or, conversely, a fruit solid, a temperament enthusiastic, compact and muscular.
The persistence in the mouth is simply outstanding.
The harvest is here, naturally, full manual, raising 100% new oak barrels.
Like most of the Great Wines of Burgundy, it will be opened after several years of custody.
