flagBurgundy / France

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Richebourg 2011 has a rather strange, rather lean nose considering that this is a grand cru, with slightly green fruit – perhaps some oxidation here? Returning later, the nose has tucked its shirt in and straightened its tie, developing more focus and harmony, the spectrum of red fruit brighter, more luminescent. The palate is medium-bodied and shows more cohesion. There is nicely judged acidity with appealing soft, tertiary tannins, however it just seems to be missing substance on the linear finish.
