Vilket underbart vin! Vi var alla inne på att det var klart yngre än 1990. Kraftfull doft med mogna jordgubbar, tobak, te, lite örter och blomsteräng. I smaken har det kvar mycket av primärfrukten trots mogna toner. Befinner sig i ett väldigt bra stadie. Underbar balans och lång fin eftersmak
Nose with ripe strawberries and hints of decaying strawberries, some cherries, spice, pronounced mint notes, a hint of green herbaceous notes, and mineral. Wonderful developed classical Burgundy notes! Palate with ripe strawberries, good tart berry character with a lot of freshness, mineral, spices, mouthfeel with some viscosity, and a quite long aftertaste. Perfect maturity but with a lot of youthful character, and I think we opened this bottle at its absolute summit. 97 p
This came across quite differently from the bottle I tasted in 2011. It was also interesting to note how velvety this wine was, since in its youth, DRC Richebourg tends to be quite tannic.

(DRC Richebourg) The 1990 DRC Richebourg was a grand finale to this flight. Great stem aromas jumped out right away. Secondary aromas of iron, menthol, cedar and red, wintry fruits soon followed. The palate had the most pop and t ‘n a. Its finish was superb, its acidity clearly lasting longer than any of the others. There was no ‘1990 disease’ here, and its great, stemmy aromas carried over to the palate
