Domaine Richaud has a reputation for producing some of the finest wines in the Southern Rh̫ne, characterised by bright fruit, superb balance and great drinkability.

The vinification takes place in concrete tanks where the wine remains until bottling, after which it is stored in temperature controlled underground cellars until the release to the market.
