International Wine Cellar | Rating: 97Deep red. Mineral-driven crushed black raspberry and crushed rock aromas are complemented by notes of molten dark chocolate and espresso. A huge wine of great sweetness and depth; conveys an almost candied character but also an impression of medicinal reserve and powerful extract. The superb, slowly building finish goes on and on. More harmonious today than the RSV.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: January/February 2011
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96The 2009 Richebourg towers with its imposing stature and regal, aristocratic personality. It is an inward, cool wine laced with gorgeous dark red fruit. Today, the Richebourg is very much closed in on itself, but it should be a jewel of a wine once it starts to blossom in bottle. That could very well take over a decade.Author: Antonio Galloni
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
