AG98 "The 2020 Richebourg Grand Cru is one of my favorite wine in this range, and I say that notwithstanding the fact that Richebourg is rarely a wine I truly adore, at DRC or anywhere else. Dark and somber, the 2020 is packed with blue/black fruits, mocha, lavender and graphite. The typically burly Richebourg tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Purists might say the 2020 is not a typical Richebourg. I would agree with that, in a very positive sense. Statuesque and regal in bearing, with tons of elegance, the 2020 is utterly captivating from the first taste." AG for VM Mar 2023

BH97 "Here the notably ripe mocha-inflected nose was restrained to the point that it required aggressive swirling for several minutes before it slowly revealed it cool and exuberantly spicy nose of pure cassis, black raspberry and a plethora of floral and exotic tea elements. The super-sleek and almost painfully intense big-bodied and muscular flavors seem to be built on a base of pungent minerality, all wrapped in a massively and overtly austere and compact yet long finish that just goes and goes. There is a trace of warmth though it's not enough to materially disturb the overall sense of harmony. While the Domaine's Richebourg is always built-to-age, the dazzling 2020 version is going to be a very long-distance runner." AM for BH Jan 2023
