Our Notes From the importer, Becky Wasserman & Co - with only 0.17 ha of Richemone and 0.27 ha of Aux Cras, the Mugneret family had always blended both parcels, and because the two crus were allowed to be labelled as Boudots, that’s what they did.“But it always felt uncomfortable for me,” says Pascal. “We talked about Aux Boudots but when people asked where my vines were located, I had to answer, ‘well, they are not actually in Boudots.’”Since 2017, Pascal has bottled the two crus separately. Boudots was often our favorite wine in the cellar but we have no regrets. Both crus are spectacular in their own right and even though the parcels are adjacent (the southeast corner of Pascal’s Aux Cras touches the northwest corner of his La Richemone) the wines are very different.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.”
