Scores and tasting notes
The 2018 Richebourg Grand Cru is a little more backward than the premiers crus that preceded it, opening in the glass with notes of strawberry compote, cherries, raw cocoa, espresso roast and a lavish application of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and enveloping, with a textural, concentrated profile underpinned by succulent acids. My sense is that this will come together very positively with further élevage. There's certainly a sweetness to the fruit here that recalls Méo's very successful 2003 vintage, as well as the freshness and structure to ensure balance.
