The Story

Richebourg is one of the six fabled Grands Crus of Vosne Romanée; its wines often representing the apogee of red Burgundy.  Lying between Flagey-Échezeaux (home of the Échezeaux appellation) and Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée occupies the middle position in the Côte de Nuits.

A thousand years ago, it was the Benedictine monks of Saint-Vivant de Vergy and the Cistercians of Cîteaux who first realised the value of these very special plots of land.  It borders La Romanée and Romanée-Conti in the south and Romanée-Saint-Vivant in the east.  The climat is 7.40 hectares and is planted with Pinot Noir grapes, making only red wine. 

It is known for its rich, opulent style and round tannins.  These wines age impressively well but they have a dense, fruity, very aromatic taste that makes them hard to resist when young.
