Good bright red-ruby. Black raspberry, cassis, violet, dark chocolate, licorice and cinnamon on the restrained but very pure nose and palate. The subtly complex palate offers compelling sweetness and early charm, making this wine much easier to taste today than the Cros Parantoux. Wonderfully pliant Richebourg, delivering an exhilarating combination of sweetness and spice. The finish saturates the entire palate, with noble tannins buried under a wave of flavor. (ST)
The 2010 Richebourg from Domaine Méo-Camuzet is another absolutely brilliant wine, with elegance, sappiness and stunning signature of soil. The deep, complex and refined bouquet offers up a mélange of red and black cherries, plums, cocoa powder, woodsmoke, violets, beautiful soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and completely suave on the attack, with a sappy core, beautiful transparency, refined tannins and great length and grip on the perfectly poised and focused finish. Richebourg is not always the most soil-driven of terroirs in Vosne, but the 2010 Méo-Camuzet version is beautifully transparent. Drink between 2022-2075. 97+
This is almost aromatically mute at present and while a plethora of spice notes are visible, it requires aggressive swirling to liberate them. As with the Brûlées, there is an intoxicating inner mouth perfume where the opulence of the spice notes really becomes obvious. The stony, intense and strikingly well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors possess ample amounts of power and a sleek muscularity before terminating in a driving and explosive finish. This is exceptionally firmly structured and this is one to buy and forget in the cellar. Spectacular. *Don't Miss!*
The 2010 Richebourg shows off considerable vibrancy and sheer tannic heft. A core of dark red fruit drives through the mid-palate as this energetic, vibrant wine opens up in the glass. The wine turns layered and finessed on the finish, with piercing mineral notes that add a crystalline purity that is striking. Patience will be key here. (AG)
