Richebourg, Anne Gros 2008
Here the wood toast is more subtle if by no means invisible with an attractively layered and fresh nose of spicy purple fruit aromas that lead to solidly rich, full and tautly muscled flavors that are not particularly big or powerful by the usual standards of this wine but there is beautiful balance and focus. This should mature over the medium-term, which is to say 5 to 8 years earlier than what I usually suggest.
