Just received, the A.F. Gros 2015. Another best of Burgundy 2015 wine. It is a collectible, but will already surprise in about 5 years.
The 2015 Richebourg Grand Cru was very tight on the nose when I tasted it. It did not seem to express the aristocratic nature of this formidable grand cru—perhaps a little emasculated? The palate is better with firm tannin, a clean line of acidity, focused and here beginning to convince the pedigree of the vineyard. The finish is very well defined and the persistence very long, but returning to the aromatics they still seem to be on stand-by mode. Let's see how it will show from bottle.
