Game, musk, Latakia tobacco, and dark berries in the nose of the Domaine’s 2007 Richebourg foreshadow flavors of salted tart black fruits, roasted game, and hints of black pepper and tar, all underlain by mouth-coating, faintly gum-numbing if fine-grained, tannins. After the charm of the Echezeaux, imposing sweetness of the Grands-Echezeaux, and savory mystery of the Romanee-St.-Vivant, I confess I may be at fault in not conceiving an inspiring role to assign this faintly Syrah-like Richebourg. It displays impressive amplitude, ripeness, and sheer grip – especially for its vintage – but is slightly ungainly (as it was earlier in barrel), if perhaps merely adolescently so. I would (in an ideal world, of course!) want to revisit this in 3-4 years, though I am sure it is built to last for well more than a decade.

Added to favorites.
