    April 30, 2021 - 3 days in Napa: Arkenstone, Memento Mori, Maxem, The French Laundry, Christopher Tynan, Kinsman, Harlan, Vice Versa, Accendo, Fairchild, Macdonald, and a truckload of others (Napa): Earthy and funky black cherry flavors dolphin their way in and out of waves of furry tannins, further warming the palate with plum, allspice, and faint burnt orange rind notes. Finishes slightly chewy and wooly until the fruit returns into play and reverberates back on the palate, reoffering the core fruit again and extending the flavor. This really hit its stride after about thirty minutes of having been open. This window lasted about an hour or so before extended air and slightly warmer temperatures started to shut it down. 95-96 points.

    Hand-to-God I have no idea how to gauge where the optimum drinking window is for a wine like this. My experience here with this producer is so limited, I am even hesitant to author a tasting note. For you big baller DRC freaks who can play in the big sandbox while the rest of us kiddies watch on the sidelines, hats off to you. This is the kind of wine that humbles us novice wannabe wine devotees and makes me want to continue to learn more (a lot more), and also reminds me how even more I don’t know. In any event, I thoroughly enjoyed it with a little bit of air and some swirling. I did prefer it at a cooler service temperature, but that is often a general preference I have for red wines, especially reds with some age. A very special bottle of wine popped by our hosts. A thousand thank yous to Patrice and Samantha Breton for their continued graciousness and generosity.

    March 10, 2021 - Tightly knitted and regal DRC that has the signature stems, perfume and transparency. Generally not a big fan of 2006 DRC, but the Richebourg is clearly a big step above RSV, GE and Echezeaux. Drinking well for a young Richebourg.

    January 8, 2021 - SLDS New Year (Quay, Sydney): Graphite, plum, redcurrant, cherry and violets on the nose. Classic on the palate - this has power and control but retains that edge of fruit delicateness. Brilliant control and length. Ticking along in style.

    August 26, 2020 - Dog Year Wines (Yan, National Gallery, Singapore): A superb wine, even though this was easily a decade from peak. The nose was deep and compelling, with wonderful draws of sweet black cherries and plums seasoned with gobs of violets, earth and roasted meats, these with a liberal infusion of wood spice. Rather more reserved than the blushing beauty of a Musigny we had alongside, but this was very attractive nonetheless. The palate was another story - full and powerful and absolutely mouthfilling, a true Richebourg, with a deep seam of blueberries and black cherry flavours, these lined with a spine of stony mineral and then a liberal bloom of wood spice, all leading into a wonderful long, full, generous finish. There was so much power on this, yet also an effortless grace and sinewy strength. Great structure too, with a velvety grip of tannins and beautifully integrated acidity that kept that wine floating across the mouth. A tremendous wine. Drinking well enough now, but this should really hit its stride 8-10 years from now.

    July 23, 2020 - In a Galaxy Far, Far Away - Richebourg ! (Vancouver, BC, Canada): Darkest red of 7 DRC Richebourg’s tasted at this incredible dinner event - with mild raspberry and nutmeg on the nose. Moderate mid-palatal grip with fleshy cranberries melding into a mild herbaceous rose petal finish painted with subtle Guk-ganjang soy and bergamot. Enjoyable now but better in 5-10 years.
