Reviews of purchase Domaine Jean Grivot, Richebourg Grand Cru, AOC 2006
Dense ruby red color with a bright luster.
Very layered, powerful and bright, incredible depth, but at the same time, silky, soft, clean taste with firm tannins and balanced acidity. As liquid silk at the entrance fades into the mid to dark, with incredible density and energy, the taste of dark raspberry and minerals. Extremely long and enchanting aftertaste.
Really terrific flavor Richebourg! The predominance of coffee and chocolate - when the new wine, violet - when mature. Very clean, expressive aromas of balsam black currant, juicy raspberries, wild berries, ripe red fruit, vanilla and oriental spices with a hint of oak.
The perfect companion for a good Burgundy serve roasted pheasant breast with baked potatoes and a light sauce, roasted grouse, medallions of venison or deer, mushrooms stewed in cream sauce. Richebourg Grand Cru is very suitable to the French Kishu (cake) with mushrooms. Also goes well with hard cheeses, especially Tomme de Savoie.
