Pascal Mugneret believes this to be the finest terroir of the domaine, and the finest expression of his craft.  Pascal’s Aux Cras and La Richemone are adjacent but La Richemone is higher on the slope. It is the domaine's steepest parcel and it is plowed by horse. Richemone is composed of two words: riche (mighty, rich) and mone, which sounds like none (nun, sister). Did the parcel belong to rich nuns? It is likely since the nuns at the Abbey du Lieu-Dieu had vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges. (Source: Marie-Hélène Landrieu-Lussigny).

Wine Advocate:

The most muscular, structured wine in the range is the 2021 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru La Richemone, a medium to full-bodied, firm and chalky red evocative of sweet berries, spices, baking chocolate and vine smoke. This will, as usual, require some patience.

Nuits Saint Georges
Pinot Noir
Very shallow (5 to 25 cm) light, sandy and stony topsoil over Limestone
100% whole cluster, ambient yeast fermentations. Aged in oak barrels (usually 100% new since Pascal makes only one barrel ) for 12 to 18 months. Since 2016, very moderate sulfur additions: none during vinification, a little during élevage and before bottling, for a total of 15 to 20 ppm.
