Winemaker Notes

Richebourg is a king of a wine: the Colonnade of the Louvre, the Château of Versailles. You are impressed by its finesse, its length and its delicate sensations, endlessly changing. The fact that no element dominates the others enables you to appreciate all of its aromas, on the nose and on the palate. Force and subtlety in one wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 98
The 2020 Richebourg Grand cru has a refined and beautifully focused bouquet, like the Aux Brulees, a gradual build of red fruit laced with crushed stone and wilted rose petal. The palate is very focused with finely chiseled tannins, fanning out wonderfully on the finish. Perhaps a much more elegant Richebourg than its peers, this is absolutely superb.
Barrel Sample: 96-98
JM 98
Jasper Morris
Gorgeous balanced mid purple. The nose has the heady qualities of this great vineyard but not the possible excesses of this vintage. Gets richer in the glass. Layers of fruit here, almost too much to understand in one go. Could just use a mini ounce of extra freshness perhaps, though that could of course be the sample. Tighter structure nonetheless.
Barrel Sample: 94-98
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aromas of cherries, blackberries, burning embers, exotic spices, violets and blood orange introduce the spectacular 2020 Richebourg Grand Cru, a full-bodied, velvety and enveloping wine that's deep and multidimensional, with lively acids, supple tannins and a long, resonant finish. Rich and concentrated, it's a brilliant wine in the making.
Barrel Sample: (95-97)+
BH 97
A restrained, elegant and wonderfully fresh nose speaks of a beautiful array of spice and floral elements on the mix of both red and dark fruit, exotic tea and a whiff of oak toast scents. There is excellent energy to the well-detailed and powerful broad-shouldered flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the markedly firm but not rigid tannic spine shaping the driving, balanced and hugely long finish. This youthfully austere and decidedly backward effort is a classic Richebourg of class and grace but also one that is very much built to repay several decades of keeping.
Barrel Sample: 94-97

Domaine Meo-Camuzet Méo-Camuzet Vineyard Winery Image

Méo-Camuzet is one of the most celebrated domaines of the Côte d’Or, located in the heart of prestigious Vosne-Romanée. The domaine boasts fourteen hectares of land in some of the most spectacular appellations and crus of Burgundy. Méo-Camuzet bottles four astounding grands crus, ten premier crus, several village wines, one Bourgogne Rouge, and only one white. Vigneron Jean-Nicolas Méo aims for balance and purity of fruit, which he accomplishes with terrific success. Though delicate and fine, even in their youth, the paradoxical concentration and intensity of these wines make them ideal for long cellar aging.

Vosne-Romanee Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot Noir in Burgundy. The village claims six Grands Crus—and some of the most famous at that—but in other villages where owners manage tiny parcels or a few rows of any one vineyard, monopolies dominate the Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanee.

Of these monopolies, Domaine Romanee-Conti (DRC) reigns supreme, claiming not only more total vineyard area than any other producer, but outright owning the entirety of two of the Grands Crus and a majority of two others. In its full possession are naturally Romanée-Conti, as well as La Tâche. DRC also owns most of Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant. The final two, La Grande Rue and La Romanée are completely owned by other other produers: François Lamarche and Comte Liger Belair, respectively.

While one could spend a lifetime on the puzzles of land ownership in Burgundy, the point is that Vosne-Romanee contains the most valuable pieces of vineyard real estate in the world. Pinot Noir from any of its vineyards—especially from within its 27ha of Grand Cru or 58 ha of Premier Cru land—is going to rank among the best.

The most outstanding wines from this village have everything: finesse and elegance coupled with the body and sturdiness for incredibly long aging ability. They are intensely floral and exotically spiced. Beautifully ripe, complex and ephemeral throughout, they are robust, yet fine-grained in texture. These wines will stay gorgeous for the long haul.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
