Description

Richebourg is one of the six grand cru single vineyard appellations in the hallowed village of Vosne-Romanée, in Burgundy's Côte de Nuits. It is one of the larger sites in the village and is famous for its full-bodied, muscular style of Pinot Noir. Richebourg wines are in fact some of the most opulent from Vosne-Romanée, exhibiting earthy characters along with dense fruit, and they are capable of being cellared for many years.

The climat is Vosne-Romanée's northernmost grand cru, situated on the midslope of the Côte d'Or. It sits immediately adjacent to the La Romanée and Romanée-Conti sites, and the Romanée-Saint-Vivant climat is on the slopes below. The famous Cros Parantoux Premier Cru vineyard, often considered to be worthy of grand cru status, is on the slopes above Richebourg.

Tasting Profile

Nose
When young, this wine reveals aromas of musk and Russian leather, with touches of sandalwood. With age it acquires scents of hawthorn and peach blossom. Two aromatic families can be distinguished: hints of lichen, woodland undergrowth and mushrooms on the one hand, on the other the scent of cherries, blackcurrants, cooked or preserved fruits.
Palate
When young this wine positively explodes, intense and violent. It needs to be allowed to age for several years, in the course of which will become expansive and warm.
