Richebourg 2011 Domaine Leroy
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2011 Richebourg Grand Cru is a cousin of the Romanee-Saint-Vivant on the nose, but a little more taciturn prior to revealing enthralling sea-spray scents with aeration, here interpolated by subtle pine needle scents, coniferous forest. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a denser framework than the RSV with a powerful, almost burly finish, though perhaps the Romanee-Sain-Vivant has a little more finesse and tension. Still, a magnificent wine, though.
