AF Gros Richebourg Grand Cru 2013

750 mL bottle  |   LCBO#:  427830

Allen Meadows' barrel tasting note: This is riper than the Ech and not quite as fresh though there is excellent complexity to the layered aromas of plum, black currant and Asian style tea scents. On the plus side there is a slightly finer mouth feel even though there is clearly more size, weight, power and punch to the broad-shouldered flavors that also brim with dry extract on the velvet-textured finale that seems to go on and on. This is certainly structured but in the context of the appellation this is not imposing and as such, it will be approachable a bit earlier than what would be considered typical. (92-94) [drink] 2028+
