Domaine Richaud Logo

Domaine Richaud might be situated closer to the Languedoc than Burgundy, but stylistically Marcel Richaud sees himself as having more in common with the Cote d`Or.

He is dismissive of what he describes as the over-extracted styles of the south. The key, he says, is balance and this begins in the meticulous vineyards.

His new winery has a succession of smaller tanks, giving greater flexibility for blending smaller parcels of wine.
