Thursday, July 14, 2011 - Wednesday Night Burgundies (Bar Boulud): On the first sip this seemed very similar to the 2006 but with more length of flavor, an extra little layer of stuff on the back end. As I sat with both glasses, though, that extra little layer seemed to make all the difference as it seemed to crank up the salty meatiness of the wine to a level of expressiveness that sharply contrasted with the reserved personality of the '06 - it became evocative to the point where there was almost something Northern Rhone-like about it. I think several people had this down as their favorite wine of the night and it certainly had a readiness to it that many of the others didn't, even if it's not a top example of DRC Richebourg.
