A fine bright medium deep red purple. The nose is not explosive but clearly there is wonderful weight of fruit behind, not too ripe, definitely red fruit, perhaps ripe cherry in style. The balance of the fruit and the density on the palate are exquisite. Now the fruit seems a touch darker, finishing more with a feeling of freshness than of acidity. Seamless and just nicely generous, very lovely. Tasted: November 2018. Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy

The 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru has a showstopping, persistent bouquet of intense blackberry, sous-bois and crushed stone. The supremely well-balanced palate offers filigreed tannin, wonderful mineralité and an otherworldly-long finish. One of the most elegant Richebourgs that I have tasted. Best Richebourg in show this year? Quite possibly. Six barrels produced. Neal Martin – Vinous media

Tasting note: The elegant, airy and beautifully perfumed nose offers up notes of sandalwood, anise, clove, herbal tea and plenty of floral influences. There is excellent delineation and minerality to the solidly concentrated, indeed even muscular, large-scaled flavors that culminate in an incredibly long if very, very backward, austere and compact finale. This Zen-like effort is going to require an extended snooze in a cool cellar and as such, it's a wine to buy and forget that you own it for at least a decade Allen meadows - Burghound

The king of the cellar is the 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru, a decidedly promising wine that wafts from the glass with notes of rose petal, dark wild berries, smoke, Asian spices, espresso roast, licorice and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, its satiny structuring tannins cloaked in succulent, fleshy fruit, its finish long and vibrant. The Richebourg stands apart for its amplitude and completeness this year. William Kelley - The Wine Advocate
