Country: France, Burgundy, Vosne Romanee, Rchebourg Grand Cru
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir

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.

Tasting Notes: Notes of leather and cocoa combine with intense, ripe red fruits on a wonderfully complex nose. The wine displays lovely freshness, fine tannins, and extremely ripe red-fruit notes that are quite high-toned. For all its richness the wine is slightly closed at present. Alcohol is in balance with the fruit and the finish is long and harmonious. This clearly has much more to offer as it matures

Food Pairing: Pairs with goose, duck, and game birds

Wine Body: Medium Body
Product Id: 0472

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
