The score for 2004 DRC Richebourg Grand Cru is 94 from Robert Parker and the tasting note - Slightly deeper colour than RSV. A very expressive nose with more fruit intensity. Cherry, wild strawberry, cigar box and a touch of damp earth. Something slightly Pauillac-like about it! A stern, medium-bodied palate, cohesive and focused, conservative with notes of dried blood, iron amongst the red fruits. Broody, masculine finish with just a light sprinkle of white pepper. Again, there is a stalky quality in the background. A second bottle is similar but more sensuous and feminine. (953 cases produced)
