Henri Richards

Located in the beautiful village of Gevrey Chambertin, Domaine Henri Richard is certified by ECOCERT and is recognized for organic & bio-dynamic farming since 2005.

Henri Richard Estate mainly makes a variety of elegant and structured red Burgundies but also produces a superb Bourgogne Aligoté.

In 1938, Jean Richard, a former cooper, bought the family’s first parcels of vines in Gevrey-Chambertin – and grand cru parcels at that – in Mazoyères and Charmes-Chambertin. There was a follow-up purchase of a house and the vines behind the house (still the domaine’s home today) – two hectares of Gevrey-Chambertin Les Corvées. Jean’s son, Henri, joined his father at the domaine in 1939.

The most recent succession came when Richard and Sarah Bastien, the children Margaret and Jean, took on responsibility for the domaine.

The domaine today is a modest 4.5 hectares, and also includes a little aligoté, Côte de Nuits Villages blanc, Côteaux Bourguignone and Marsannay. Starting with the 2014 vintage, the team here are now labelling their wines as ‘AB’ (agriculture biologique).

Owner, Domaine Henri Richard mainly produces great Pinot Noirs.The family obtains wines here that meet their requirements: the symbiosis of a grape variety, its terroir and a tradition.

Domaine Henri Richard is a new name – but a nevertheless a name that should not be overlook henceforward.
