As Jasper Morris says "Richebourg is usually considered the grandest of the grand crus in the Village (Vosne-Romanee), apart from the monopoles of Romanee-Conti, La Romanee and La Tache."

 

The 8.03 hectares that make up this vineyard are divided amongst eleven owners. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti with 3.51 hectares are by far the largest. Next comes Leroy with 0.78 hectares.

 

But perhaps the most interesting holdings belong to the Gros family. In 1882 Louis-Gustave Gros acquired 2 ha of Richebourg – with the main part located in the Les Verroilles ou Richebourg section. In 1932 Louis Gros, the grandson became the owner. When Louis Gros passed away in 1951 his four children formed a joint ownership that was maintained until 1963 when the family holdings were split between the heirs.
