Domaine Jean Grivot

flagBurgundy / France

The 1999 Richebourg Grand Cru from Grivot is a long-term wine. Even after 16 years the nose is deep, broody and has a sign outside saying "come back later." I would say around five years. But I think there is great potential here (incidentally, not a view shared by others present at this tasting). With aeration, it reluctantly reveals sage and light Japanese nori (seaweed) aromas that I believe will become more prominent with time. The palate is well balanced, quite dense and perhaps "stocky," but hey, this is Richebourg not RSV! Give this burly Richebourg several years and you will have a serious wine.
