There is just a hint of bricking present on the rim. This is now beginning to display some secondary characters along with ripe notes of plum, earth, dark berry fruit and subtle spice elements. There is very good concentration to the intense and well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess a clean mouth feel and fine length on the balanced if mildly austere finish. This caressing effort is still on the way up though it's not so far away that you couldn't enjoy a bottle now if you were so inclined. In sum, this is an excellent and still improving 2000.
Good full red. Black cherry, plum, minerals, tar and chocolate on the nose, along with mellow wood scents; high-pitched and primary for the year. Very strong entry, then vibrant and focused in the middle. Finishes ripe, long and rather uncompromising, with fine, horizontal tannins that coat the molars. Should be long-lived in the context of the vintage. Also tasted: 2000 Nuits-Saint-Georges. (ST)
A concentrated, tightly-wound wine, the medium to dark-ruby-colored 2000 Richebourg has a dark berry-laden nose. Powerful and dense, it is highly structured, crammed with black berries, and deep. This firm, backward, medium-bodied offering has loads of edgy tannin that are, at present, dominated by its impressive fruit. (PR)
