Like a mingling of roasted lamb and beef marrow with lightly-cooked black raspberry, decadent flowers, brown spices, and caramel, Anne Gros’s 2008 Richebourg represents a meaty meal all its own. The suffusion of tannin here is as refined though more intense than in the corresponding Clos Vougeot, and this finishes with the vibratory energy displayed by so many of the best 2008s, here taking the form of a spice and fruit colloquy. What I miss here is quite the mouthwatering combination of mineral elements with carnal savor captured in the corresponding Clos Vougeot, but the meatiness certainly runs long and deep in this Richebourg. Here is one Gros 2008 that will deserve a few years of rest in the cellar and ought to perform well for at least 10-12 years. Jun 2010, www.robertparker.com
