A long lasting, smooth premium cuvee with a fruity overtone and masterfully integrated oak wood (14 months barrel ripening).
The experience of vinification and ageing such outstanding grape varieties as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah has benefitted in the creation of a new cuvee, named after a great roman agronomist, who described agriculture and wine making of his epoch. The masculine personality of Cabernet Sauvignon, with the feminine character of Syrah, enriched with other varieties that remain the secret of the wine maker, coalesce to a harmonious wine of great complexity, that became the quality seal of Domaine Richeaume.
The Richeaume story begins in the United States of America, when Henning Hoesch was teaching canonical law at Yale University. There he realized that progress was so often achieved at the cost of nature. Consequently, he looked for a place to put his vision of a return back to agricultural traditions into reality. In 1972, together with his wife Julia, between Rousset and Puyloubier he found Domaine Richeaume, comprising an area of 65 hectares.
