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. Very shallow (5 to 25 cm) light, sandy and stony topsoil.

La Richemone comes closest to Pascal’s ideal of the wines he wants to make. “A friend once asked me if I was making the wines I had always imagined I would make,” Pascal says. “I answered ‘no.’ We’re on our way but we’re not there yet. But when I taste La Richemone, I can say that we’ve reached the target. The wine is a combination of opposites. It’s very rich on the attack and you could imagine that the finish will be very heavy. But it is not heavy at all. It’s mineral, it’s floral. This wine is a movie from beginning to end.”

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.
