Richebourg 2016 Anne Gros
€ 652,19 (incl. BTW)
The 2016 Richebourg Grand Cru, whose vines were less hit by frost than the Echézeaux or the Clos de Vougeot, boasts a magnificent bouquet with beautifully defined red berry fruit, cold limestone and pressed flowers. There is a sense of harmony and flow to this wine that sweeps you off your feet. The palate is very tensile right from the start. Maybe this is a more linear Richebourg to others at the moment and yet the intensity is completely locked into this wine. There are darker fruits than the bouquet suggests: blackberry, raspberry, redcurrant and a conspicuous pepperiness, almost feral on the finish that really imbues this wine with personality. Superb.
