The 2010 Richebourg is a kaleidoscope of black fruit, graphite, mint, violets and spices. It is a towering, statuesque wine that completely saturates the palate in all directions, seemingly at the same time. The 2010 stands out for its beguiling, totally exquisite aromatics. The trademark Richebourg structure is present, but this seems to be a vintage where finesse takes precedence over sheer power. Anticipated maturity: 2030-2060.
Its opulent full-bodied personality is crammed with sweet red cherries, tar, blackberry jam, juniper berries, and cloves. Its extraordinarily long finish displays copious round, ripe, and supple tannins.
Beautiful sweetness of fruit is present in this medium-bodied, tightly-knit, but gloriously pure, well-delineated Lafite.
The medium-to-dark ruby-colored Pommard Les Vignots possesses feminine and refined aromas of violets intertwined with sweet red cherries. This seductive, silky-textured, powerful, and opulent wine enthralls with its dried and fresh red fruit flavors as well as its long, luscious, supple tannin-filled finish.
The 2008 Pauillac exhibits lots of cedarwood and black currant notes. Quite evolved, medium-bodied, and already very complex, this wine will drink well for another 5-8 years.
