Winemaker Notes - The 2009s confirm that they are from an exceptional vintage. There are two principal reasons for this. It is an exceptional vintage because quantity is, for once, at the top of the yield range for the appellation: 25 to 32 hl/ha. It is exceptional also because quality is at its highest level, thanks to the suppleness and harmony that make 2009 one of the most seductive vintages of the last twenty years. As a result, vignerons and consumers alike have reason to smile!
Tasting Notes - Beatiful color. On the Nose, it is powerful, but fresh with minerality and blackcurrant-bud notes. This is a classic Richebourg: budding with freshness and energy, but the wine is still wrapped in fine tannins that need time to develop.
