The sweet perfume, talcum powder, and cherry juice-scented 1996 Richebourg has a dark ruby/purple color. This extraordinary wine has a full body, immense richness, and a classy, powerful, satin-textured core of red currants, black cherries, spices, and blackberries. It is highly-structured and has copious tannins, yet they are enveloped in dense, thick fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015.
