Domaine Richaud, situated in the heart of Cairanne, has a reputation for producing some of the finest wines of the Southern Rhône, characterised by bright fruit, superb balance and great drinkability. Marcel Richaud is the fifth generation of his family to make wine. Stylistically, he sees himself as having more in common with Burgundy's Côte d'Or than with what he describes as “the over-extracted wines of the South”. Today, his daughters Claire and Édith and his son Thomas run the family domaine.

The nose is full of fresh, red fruit aromas. The palate displays the full fruitiness of the Grenache and the wilder, spicy characters of the Mourvèdre. It is a rich, full-bodied wine with well-structured, supple tannins and a long, alluring finish.
