Richebourg is a king of a wine: the Colonnade of the Louvre, the Château of Versailles. You are impressed by its finesse, its length and its delicate sensations, endlessly changing. The fact that no element dominates the others enables you to appreciate all of its aromas, on the nose and on the palate. Force and subtlety in one wine?

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Richebourg Grand Cru has an expressive bouquet, a little earthier than the 2015 Cros Parantoux, more reserved and statesmanlike, though at the same time it shows impressive clarity and gains stature with every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with superb, quite robust tannin that lend this Richebourg the arching structure that can define this vineyard. There is some some new oak to be absorbed on the finish, but there is great density and length. Does it have the flamboyance of the Cros Parantoux? Let's see - my bets are with the premier cru at present. I suspect that this will be an imposing Richebourg with time, as Jean-Nicolas Méo himself commented. Drink Date: 2023-2045.
