2013 Domaine Jean Grivot Richebourg Grand Cru

Burgundy | Pinot Noir

the 2013 Richebourg Grand Cru has a slightly smudged bouquet at the moment, though there is impressive purity here and it gains delineation in the glass: red cherries, wild strawberry and a touch of orange rind. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit. There is a fine line of acidity that lends this the tension it needs to offset the concentration. Tightly coiled and backward on the structured finish, give this 5-7 years to mellow into what will surely be an outstanding Richebourg.
