Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Archive

Remarkably ripe, in fact this is the ripest nose I can ever remember a bottle of the '78 Richebourg showing followed by rich, elegant, fantastically complex flavors and outstanding length. If one wanted to nit pick, a bit more acid balance would be nice but I like this a lot as it's incredibly seductive. Impressive.

Colour beautifully shaded just like the Echezeaux 1978. Hint of violets – a really high topnote. Lovely sweetness and unctuousness, Quite a different qualith on the palate however: very long with smoothness, sweetness and unctuousness.

The 1978 Richebourg reveals a medium ruby color, with a blossoming, still unevolved and youthful bouquet of sweet black fruits, minerals, smoke, soy sauce, and spices. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with plenty of concentration, good acidity, firm tannins, and a rich, long finish. Amazingly, it has still not reached full maturity. This wine should turn out to be profound.
