Fabulous! So much strength and complexity from a Pinot.

Actually showing very nicely today. I wouldn't call it fruit-forward, but it's not forbiddingly tannic either; instead of acting like a shell, the structure is nicely melded into the fruit in a latticework of fine tannin that's more delicate and feminine than the usual expectation for Richebourg. (Though I have notes on the DRC of the same vintage from a couple years ago and they are similar!) This opens with prickly blackberry fruit, a subtle dusting of five-spice, and another flavor that's more out-there and advanced, suggestive of antique wood and wheat/grain-like flavors. With air the fruit profile turns redder and picks up more primary sweetness and gloss, though the web of tannin is always there giving it a more worsted woolen texture.

Too quote a wise friend about another wine, fantabulous. Deep, dark, rich fruit with lovely velvety texture and spicy mineral accents. This is the black magic that Burgundy weaves so well. Just fantastic wine.
