The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru is not as immediate as Thibault Liger-Belair's Richebourg and for a fleeting moment it comes across as a bit disjointed. It only needs a bit of rigorous swirling for it to coalesce into something much more enticing: red plum, crushed strawberry, warm gravel and just a light Cuban cigar scent. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin and seamlessly integrated new oak. This is edgier than the Richebourg from Thibault Liger-Belair, just as captivating in many ways, although it is not as immediate and not as seductive. It boasts amazing persistence, completing a very cerebral and entrancing wine. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin

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.
