Oh yes. Oh yes, yes, yes. This 1999 Richebourg Grand Cru is a bit like a great athlete, one who really shows its class against stiff opposition, here in the form of 18 other Richebourg! It follows the same thread as the... Oh yes. Oh yes, yes, yes. This 1999 Richebourg Grand Cru is a bit like a great athlete, one who really shows its class against stiff opposition, here in the form of 18 other Richebourg! It follows the same thread as the imperial 1999 La Tâche. It has been blessed with a sensational nose that boasts quite astonishing delineation and precision, fabulous mineralité. The aromatics are far more detailed and enthralling than the 2007 tasted alongside. The palate is beautifully structured, virtually symmetrical with filigree tannin, with a gentle crescendo in the mouth towards an effervescent finish with hints of orange peel. Simply effortless. - Neal Martin

Knockout utterly noble nose of black plum blackberry violet minerals earth and flowers plus an exotic suggestion of blood orange. Full suave and dense; manages to be utterly silky and precise at the same time. Wonderfully fresh and perfumed in the mouth. Finishes with great mounting persistence and purity. This has the purple flavors I associated with great Richebourg. This utterly primary wine will develop in bottle for a long time.

Practically black with a supersaturated multidimensional nose of black cherries spice and trace of new oak. Bigger and larger scaled than the RSV and much more linear and direct it is the richest most robust wine in this... Practically black with a supersaturated multidimensional nose of black cherries spice and trace of new oak. Bigger and larger scaled than the RSV and much more linear and direct it is the richest most robust wine in this lineup with decidedly muscular tannins. The flavor profile is somewhat austere yet the length is phenomenal and this could be the longest lived wine among these in '99. This has as much potential as any DRC Richebourg I've ever had.
