The Superb 2021 Richebourg From AF Gros - Rare Parcel Of Original Cases

I count some Richebourgs among the greatest Burgundies I have ever tasted.”
– Clive Coates MW

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.

2021 AF Gros, Richebourg Grand Cru
10cs @ £4,590 per case (6*75cl OC) in bond
94-96 points Neal Martin
The 2021 Richebourg Grand Cru is aged with 50% whole bunches in 80% new oak. There is a touch of reduction on the nose, though despite that this seems impressively defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied, more expressive with fine-boned tannins, taut and fresh, quite intense (as you would expect from a Richebourg). I appreciate the manner in which it builds and exerts insistent grip and structure on the finish. Serious. (2022) Drink 2027-2052
