1999 Richebourg


93Average Score
flagBurgundy / France

The 1999 Richebourg Grand Cru, now at 14 years of age, continues to sport a deep ruby color. It has an assertive, quite forceful bouquet that is rich and generous, offering dark plum, iodine and cassis fruit along with fairly prominent new oak that gives it a youthful sheen. The palate is nicely balanced with firm tannins, powerful dark cherry and cassis fruit and a tightly wound, structured finish. It is more an impressive Richebourg than one that exudes breeding, and if truth be told, it is out-classed by being flanked by two DRCs from the same vintage. Maybe it will improve with continued bottle age, but somehow, it feels like a Richebourg that did not know the bar is set so high. I have had the pleasure of superior vintages from Meo-Camuzet in the past. Drink now-2025. Aug 2013, www.robertparker.com
