Richebourg is often regarded as the most opulent Vosne-Romanée Grand Cru. The AOC appellation was created in 1936 and today includes
the two climats of Les Richebourg (5.05 ha) and Les Verroilles ou Richebourg (2.98 ha). Lying above Romanée-Saint-Vivant with only a narrow
vineyard track separating it from La Romanée and Romanée-Conti, the position is ideal. East facing on a gentle incline at an altitude of 260 to
280 metres, Richebourg's soils are very shallow, hardly ever deeper than 30 centimetres and composed of limestone scree deposits mixed with
excellent clays. The soil rests on a substratum of hard limestone from the Middle Jurassic period. Richebourg is a great terroir shared between
11 owners who produce wines of almost uniformly high quality.
