This has evolved somewhat more positively than I imagined and still has at least some potential remaining. The nose initially revealed considerable stem influence but after 45 minutes of airing the spice and dark fruit elements began to assert themselves with the overall impression being one of elegance purity and impressive complexity. The firm middle weight plus flavors are detailed minerally powerful and beautifully focused all wrapped in a lingering finish of superb length. This is classy juice and while the '93 Riche can be drunk with pleasure now for my taste it still could benefit from another 4 to 5 years of cellar time (though note that it will age for decades to come). That said if the urge moves you this is already a lovely wine. Tasted on multiple occasions.

The Richebourg exhibits a dark ruby color as well as flattering quantities of sweet jammy red and black fruits. With a husky framework and a sweet entry this ripe medium to full-bodied moderately tannic spicy cleanly made wine needs 6-8 years of cellaring; it exhibits the potential for 15-20 years of evolution. The DRC's 1993s possess the vintage's toughness tannic structure austerity and aging potential. They will not be flattering to drink in their youth and most will require 6-10 years of cellaring. Typical of the vintage they appear to be the most tannic and structured wines made at this domaine since 1983.Importer: Wilson-Daniels St. Helena CA; tel. (707) 963-9661

Austere and tough in texture now showing a dry tannic edge. Offers compacted blackberry dry cherry and vanilla character accompanied by a somewhat green flavor. This is a closed wine that needs time to come together. Try... Austere and tough in texture now showing a dry tannic edge. Offers compacted blackberry dry cherry and vanilla character accompanied by a somewhat green flavor. This is a closed wine that needs time to come together. Try in 2005.
