The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru is showing brilliantly from bottle, soaring from the glass with a complex aromatic mélange of raspberries, plums, Egyptian musk, espresso roast, Asian spices and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and satiny, with superb depth and concentration at the core, an auspicious sense of structural tension and reserve and a long, fragrant and expansive finish.- WK

(91-94) Here too a moderate wood influence frames the ripe, pure and cool aromas of plum, violets and spicy Asian-style tea. The equally pure broad-shouldered flavors ooze a fine minerality on the energetic and powerful finish that does a slow build from the mid-palate to the explosive finale. I very much like the underlying sense of tension and this is a classically styled Richebourg that is built-to-age yet not quite so structured as to preclude opening a bottle after only 6 to 8 years.

Brooding, very pure aromas of dark raspberry and crushed stone. Wonderfully stylish and supple on entry, then broader, plusher and more deeply pitched in the middle palate than the Clos Vougeot but very backward today, showing less primary fruit character and more salty minerality. Not displaying quite the early cut or definition of the Clos Vougeot but the tannins are plush and the finish boasts terrific subtle length. This wine appears to possess the spine for long aging and should eventually surpass the Clos Vougeot.- ST
