Richebourg Grand Cru
-- Parker: The 2009 Richebourg is a deep, broad shouldered wine graced with superb class. Dark red cherries, tobacco and sweet spices flow effortlessly from a structured, intense frame. Elegance appears shortly thereafter, with hints of rose petal that add lift and freshness. This is a wonderfully complete wine that will only require patience. Readers lucky enough to find it should not hesitate. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2034. 93-96/100
-- Burghound: This is also on the restrained side with a discreet nose that features a spicy, cool, ripe and elegant nose of primarily blue and black pinot fruit and wet stone nuances that continue onto the focused, powerful and substantial broad-shouldered flavors that possess superb mid-palate concentration and flat out amazing length. Grivot told me that the 2009 version of his Richebourg is the best that he has ever made and from my perspective, I agree as even the amazing 2005 did not show as well at the same point in its evolution. In a word, brilliant. 97/100
-- Galloni: Bright full red. Pungent, utterly primary nose offers ripe blackberry, black cherry, violet, crushed stone, chocolate and coffee. Vibrant, sappy and palate-staining, with soil-driven flavors of dark berries, licorice, minerals and crushed stone complicated by a saline nuance. Here the vineyard manages to dominate the vintage, which is a neat trick in 2009. Finishes with noble, serious tannins and outstanding building persistence. Give this plenty of air if you plan to try it any time soon. Better yet, cellar it and forget it for a decade or more. 96+/100 -- Stephen Tanzer
