Robert Parker 90-92
The 2013 Richebourg Grand Cru has a broody, almost curmudgeonly bouquet at first: blackberry, undergrowth, black plum and just a suggestion of hoisin all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, black truffle and a touch of dried lemon peel; quite austere and distant toward the finish at the moment. It will need several years in bottle and one hopes it will be less…moody!
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2032
