Tasting note: Here too there is just enough wood hovering in the background of the wonderfully spicy, airy and cool array of mostly dark berry fruit and floral aromas to remark upon. The tautly muscular and intensely mineral-driven large-scaled flavors possess innate power while drenching the palate in dry extract while delivering gorgeous depth and length on the dusty and youthfully austere finish. This is terrific though like several wines in the range, it would be virtually pointless to open a bottle young and besides, there is so much potential here that it would be a shame to waste it.

Domaine Jean Grivot 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru

  • Bright red with ruby tones. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate are lifted by a violet topnote. Utterly suave on entry, conveying outstanding precision and energy to its flavors of black and blue fruits and crushed rock, with a piquant hint of bitter orange marmalade contributing to the overall impression of nobility. Suave, toothdusting tannins are totally supported by fruit and the seamless, palate-saturating finish perfumes the mouth with minerals, violet and Valrhona bitter chocolate, going on for a minute or more. As charismatic as this young Richebourg is today, it's far from the most demonstrative wine in the cellar. It will need at least a decade of bottle aging and should last for at 25 to 30 years in a cool cellar.
