Domaine Armelle & Bernard Rion
The Domaine RION was founded in 1880 by Pierre Rion, the ex-sharecropper of the Château de
la Berchère who had acquired the Château’s vines. His son Louis succeeded him, and during his
time, he substantially enlarged the Domaine. In 1952, the Domaine was divided between his 2
sons. The oldest, Marcel Rion, further enlarged the Domaine and stayed in Vosne Romanée. Bernard
Rion has helped his father since 1973 and now manages the Domaine with his wife Armelle.
These balanced and complete wines are traditionally vinified. Totally de-stemmed, with a long vinification (2 to 3
weeks in open vats), and they are then aged for 18 months (half in new oak barrels). They are pleasant and
fruity for the young vintages, but well structured enough to ensure good ageing.
