The Côte de Nuits follows a narrow strip of red iron-rich soils that run the short distance south from Dijon to the town of Nuits St Georges and ends before the hill of Corton. It is perhaps the source of the greatest and most elusive Pinot Noir wines of Burgundy. To travel through this northern half of the Côte d`Or evokes a role call of great vineyard names; Gevrey, Vosne Romanée, Clos de Vougeot, Musigny, Nuits St Georges and more.
Vigneron and bon viveur Alain Michelot has tended his vines with immaculate and loving care since inheriting the estate in 1966 at a young age after the untimely passing of his father. The Domaine owns approx 20 acres of vineyards and the majority are on the slopes overlooking his home town of Nuits St Georges.The beautiful winery is located in the centre and today with help from his talented daughter Elodie they have quietly re-invested in new tanks and winemaking equipment reinforcing their long standing commitment to quality. Highly rated by Remington Norman in his book The Great Domaines of Burgundy.
This Nuits 1er Cru ‘la Richemone’ comes from old Pinot Noir vines of 30 years old or more, planted in limestone and red marl soil beside the appellation Vosne Romanee. The wine produced here has big fruit aromas of raspberries and cherry followed by good depth and richness on the palate. It has considerabe weight, ripe fruit character and subtle tannins.
