Richebourg, Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur 2017
This is the first wine to display any appreciable wood influence and in this case it's not subtle though it stops short of dominating the markedly spicy red cherry and floral-suffused nose. Once again there is very good intensity to the bigger, richer and more evidently mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that possess good muscle, power and finishing drive on the youthfully austere finish. A competent if not truly distinguished example.
