In the quote above, Clive Cotes highlights Richebourg as a special Grand Cru vineyard. Unsurprisingly, it is incredibly highly sought-after, with collectors eager to snap up precious bottles and even rarer cases. Large parcels are unheard of, so we are delighted to have one to offer today in the form of the 2021 Richebourg from Domaine A-F Gros.
Domaine A-F Gros’s parcel of Richebourg comes from a small plot of just 0.6ha and is, therefore, dwarfed by DRC’s relatively massive 3.51ha and is smaller than even Leroy’s 0.78ha. It is a wine of considerable rarity, a fact which only heightens the collectability. It is also on a strong upward curve in quality, as is demonstrated by Neal Martin’s praise for this 2021.
For Martin, this is “impressively defined and focused”, and he says, “I appreciate the manner in which it builds and exerts insistent grip and structure on the finish.” His 94-96 point score is just a fraction behind that awarded to Romanee-Conti’s 2021 Richebourg, which achieved 95-97 points, underlining the excellence here.
A great Richebourg in rare quantity, do let us know if you would like to secure a case or two.
