Lucien Le Moine Richebourg 2005
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
|Brand||Lucien Le Moine|
BurghoundThis is a seriously impressive wine from the fantastically densely fruited and spicy black fruit nose to the explosive, rich, full, deep and graceful robust and powerful flavors that are supported by buried and ripe tannins as well as the hugely long finish. A complete effort that will require long-term patience for it to arrive at its full majority. 94-97
Wine AdvocateThe 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. 2022-2039.
