Scores and tasting notes


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. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045. Jean-Nicolas Meo was away on the day of my visit, so I tasted with assistant winemaker Peer Reiss. The harvest started on September 22 and took about ten days to complete. Overall, I am a big fan of the 2010s here. Although I did not get a chance to taste the 2009s from bottle, my notes suggest 2010 will turn out to be the more interesting vintage.
