Domaine Henri Richard
This is a traditional, family-run, organic estate. Domaine founder, Jean Richard, was a cooper, and father of Henri Richard. The former bought the 1st parcel of Mazoyères-Chambertin in 1938 from the Burgundian writer Gaston Roupnel. Henri Richard received his Oenology diploma in 1939, and took care of the Domaine until 1977, succeeded by son-in-law Jean Bastien, then daughter Margaret in 1990.
The continuity of Domaine Henri Richard is now assured by the fourth generation, Richard and Sarah Bastien, children of Margaret and Jean. Wine runs in their blood: Richard is an oenologist and a consultant since 2004, and Sarah recently joined the domain with a Masters degree in Wine Knowledge and International Trade.
