The RICHARDOT spirit is also embodied in the desire for rational processes, preserving the vineyard for future generations who’ll take up the torch. Here, natural grass cover is used, the biological life of the soil is respected and preference is given to mechanical working methods rather than chemical. Solar panels, a rain water collection system and an electric company car add to this commitment to an environment-friendly and sustainable operation.
“ Our granuncle Jean often said that we’re not working the land of our ancestors but borrowing the land of our children. I think that when he laid the foundations of this company, he understood that working the land of champagne was in our family’s DNA. Respect for the land is part of our genetic heritage. I love my vines, I talk to them and they reward me well ”
adds Jean Paul, a passionate wine-grower.
Champagne is a fantastic product
