Robert Parker 91
This has a wonderful nose of ripe redcurrants, strawberry and minerals with a touch of oyster shell that comes through on the palate. Very well defined on the crisp entry, slightly leafy with lovely balance. Very natural and understated with vibrant acidity, crisp and very focused on the finish. Surprisingly primal, more so than the 1989, so I would anticipate this improving further over the next few years. A Richebourg with a certain coolness and stoicism about it. Drinking 2012-2025. Tasted November 2006.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025
