ITEM 8317092 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine storage unit
A truly great wine. Amazing concentration, brimming with focused cherry, plum, smoke and cinnamon flavors, all tied together into a harmonious package that keeps echoing and changing with every sip.
The Richebourg is enormous in an old, heavyweight style. It is a tannic, relatively closed wine, with a broodingly deep color, and sensational depth and length.
...rich, full and naturally sweet medium plus weight flavors that completely coat the mouth on the wonderfully long finish... A great '85 and one of the best of the DRC line-up in this vintage.
