Description to Richebourg AOC

Grand Cru location as a separate AOC area in the Burgundy municipality of Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits area. The vineyard was already founded by the Cistercians in the Middle Ages. The vineyards cover eight hectares on a slightly rising easterly exposed slope at an altitude of 260 to 280 metres above sea level on loamy-calcareous soils with numerous heat-storing limestones that provide good drainage. Richebourg lies between the Premier Cru sites Aux Brulées (north), Cros Parantoux, Les Petits Monts, Aux Reignots (west) and the Grand Crus Romanée-Saint-Vivant (east) and La Romanée and Romanée-Conti (south). The site, which is one of the best Burgundian Grand Crus, is divided into the two lieu-dits (plots) Les Véroilles (also Les Varoilles sous Richebourgs) and Les Richebourg. Only pure red wine from 100% Pinot Noir is produced here. Ten producers share the site, including Bichot (Domaine du Clos Frantin), Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Grivot, Anne Gros, J. Gros, Hudelot-Noellat, Domaine Leroy and Méo-Camuzet
