1969 DRC Richebourg Rouge
Browning edges to a still ruby core. This is a wine that I've had the privilege of trying many times over the years and it is now in a state of graceful decline. The nose is now completely composed of secondary aromas emphasizing caramel and lots of sous bois followed by flavors that are rich and nicely defined but thinning a touch relative to even 5 years ago. I very much like this wine as I find it beautifully detailed and satisfying in its own way but it's time to drink up. The bottle reviewed here also displayed a hint of finishing astringency but the tannins are quite refined. BH
