Richebourg 1990,Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noellat
I first began calling on Alain Hudelot in 1983 or so. At that time he didn't export much. It was Alexis Lichine, who bought wine from him in bulk, who put me on to Hudelot. I liked the man. I liked his wines. And what an array there was: Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Clos de Vougeot, three of the best Vosne premiers crus (but aren't they all good, I hear you cry) and much more. Though in, as you would expect, small quantities. But not too small.
There are 28 ares of Richebourg, at the north end, overlooking Suchots. This will make three or four casks. This 1990 is fullish, fragrant, ripe and intense. There is lovely, smooth, balanced fruit and plenty of vigour. A delicious wine.
