The Richebourg 1995 from Anne Gros is quite a powerhouse .. and age 20 only just starting to show matured notes. The nose is crammed with darkberry fruit .. cassis, dark cherries, sous-bois and oriental spices. On the palate intense and weighty fruit – earthy and tightly knit with quite a lot of grip. The fruit is pure and intense … but perhaps lacking a tad of transparancy to match the big boys. Very balanced .. but need time to unfold. A very impressive Richebourg … would perhaps have prefered it ever so slightly less extracted … nevertheless a treat.

- In the glass – 2011 vs 2012 red Burgundy I was very impressed and delighted when I tasted the 2012 reds from cask, and recent tastings of the first 2012s from bottle more than confirm the very positive first impressions.

I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
