JEAN RICHARDOT
THE FOUNDER'S PASSION

In the mid-20th century, driven by his passion for the vine, Jean Richardot took a real gamble on turning a few parcels of land into a real Champagne vineyard. Gradually, his passion became a vocation, his life revolving around the seasons, harvests and obsession for this unique wine, with a resolve to pass on this knowledge to his descendants. More than sixty years later, perpetuating this heritage is the work of an entire family: first Jackie the father, then Jean Paul, Isabelle and Cécile have adopted and improved upon the know-how of a champagne house where quality of the product is the focal point of its production process.

Here’s the story of Champagne RICHARDOT...

Happy is he who is able to trace the origin of things

A GENERATION DEDICATED
TO CHAMPAGNE EXCELLENCE

The annual output of 75,000 bottles is the fruit of these demanding standards. Managed nowadays by a family trio, the production process primarily reflects the personality of two women, Isabelle and Cécile, and one man, Jean Paul, with each one leaving their mark on it: Jean Paul guaranteeing the excellent production standards, and Isabelle and Cécile putting the feminine finishing touches to the bottles created.

“ We produce champagnes as we like to drink them, simple but elegant... ”

Isabelle says, encouraged by the many distinctions received (such as medals awarded by the Féminalise wine competition in Beaune by an exclusively female panel, an excellent reference in the Guide Gault et Millau for the Cuvée d’exception “3J” and a distinction at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards) and, to conclude, she quotes the words of the Marquise de Pompadour who once said:

« Champagne is the only wine a woman can drink and stay looking beautiful ».

“ We focus on the fineness and delicacy, structure and balance, elegance and refinement of our champagnes, which women generally go for. ”
