01920/11446. What a classic Richebourg, third time tasting this wine, even better than the previous two. Much more resolved greeness than I remembered, lacy, compact, stemmy, so attractive. 95

JK's 50th Birthday: This is like a candle, emitting flavors and it does not stop. Concentrated, rich, heavenly, everything what a perfect wine should have. Some slight signature bitter aftertaste that is so refreshing, pinching deep at every inch of the tongue. Graceful, forever heat. Super memorable with the balanced acidity. 100

JK's 50th Birthday: 007108/9120. Always one of my favorite vintages for the Domaine, immediate ripe fruit and sweetness, super attractive. Ever so slightly behind the 80 in terms of complexity (despite it being very very complex itself), but what an attractive nose. 97-98

JK's 50th Birthday: Reserve 01005/1494. My favorite of the flight in 96/99/00. Superb aromatics, so lacy, so pure, but so dense. Almost glass-like crispy acidity. Ever so slight step behind the 2001, but very classic. 97

JK's 50th Birthday: Reserve 0349/1607. I did not think this was a perfect bottle, some Vosne aromatics but not nearly as expressive/Jayer as the other two bottles. Not fair to rate.

JK's 50th Birthday: 15787/19789. So Vosne, muscular but soft, stemmy, lacy, classic DRC. Served blind to a friend who correctly identified the wine, that is how classic it is. 95-96 with further upsides
