Remoissenet Père et Fils, Richebourg Grand Cru

Never mind the one percent. Richebourg exists in the top .01%, and that extends beyond Grand Cru Burgundy: This is the extreme totality of Pinot Noir, the be-all and end-all of vinous luxury, and one of the world’s most fiercely coveted cellar magnets. This hallowed vineyard site, shared by an all-star cast of legendary domaines, is world renown for producing some of the most complex, perfumed, deeply mineral, and shockingly desirable/unobtainable wines on the planet.


This 1953 Richebourg direct from the domaine is a revelation in Burgundy collecting!

France

Bourgogne

Beaujolais

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France

Bordeaux

Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France

Alsace

Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
