A rich and fleshy version, exhibiting black cherry, blackberry, violet, iron and spice flavors. Firmly structured, yet charmingly concentrated and pure, with terrific balance. Extends nicely on the long finish. Best from 2021 through 2040. 95 cases imported.

The 2014 Richebourg Grand Cru has a quite compelling bouquet, as one is getting accustomed to chez Grivot. There are pure dark cherries, red plum and boysenberry fruit here, infused with fine mineralitAc and that sense of aristocracy one seeks in a Richebourg. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, wonderful acidity and beautifully integrated oak. There is great poise here, power hand in hand with elegance, a consummate Richebourg that will give a lot of pleasure over many years.
