Lot #386. Hudelot Noellat Richebourg 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94+ JG.
"In many vintages I have a slight preference for the Romanée-St.-Vivant over the Richebourg in the Hudelot cellars, but in 2008 the Richebourg just edges out the RSV. This wine was racked right after the harvest of the 2009s, but was showing beautifully in November, as it offers up a superb bouquet of plums, cherries, blood orange, duck, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones and a nice touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with lovely, nascent complexity, fine-grained tannins and superb length and grip on the tangy and beautifully balanced finish. A terrific Richebourg." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #24, Dec 2009
Provenance: The Aliki Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $650
