Tasting Notes

Vinous – 96+

(13.8% alcohol "with a bit of chaptalization," according to winemaker Charles Van Canneyt): Deep, full red. Very recent but pure nose eventually reveals scents of musky wild red fruits and smoky, stony minerality; a real essence of Burgundy. Deep and thick on the palate; dense with extract and utterly smooth too but with explosive energy suggesting that this wine will repay long aging. Finishes with outstanding rising smoky persistence and powerful stony minerality. These 2010s, bottled in February of 2012, display extraordinary digestibility. [Stephen Tanzer, 03/01/2013]

Robert Parker – 93

The 2010 Richebourg is, surprisingly, much more expressive than the Romanee St. Vivant. The wine fills out seemingly in all directions with a gorgeous mosaic of ripe red fruit, crushed rocks, mint and flowers. There is fabulous definition in nuance in the aromas and flavors, yet this remains a Richebourg built on understated finesse rather than power. Mineral notes reappear to give the finish a last burst of energy. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. Once again this year I tasted with Charles Van Canneyt, Alain Hudelot’s grandson. Yields were down 30% across the board, a significant drop but not terrible considering the year. Overall the 2010s are very strong and seem to point towards a style that is a bit more refined than in the past. Importer: Atherton Imports, Menlo Park, CA; tel.
