Story

Story

Since 1831, The Bichot family has been at the forefront of Burgundy wines. Over the course of 6 generations, the house style has become more and more refined and distinct in elegance.With Albéric Bichot at the helm since 1996, the house has focused its future on quality, minimal intervention winemaking and organic farming. The embodiment of this approach resulted in their 6 domaines being fully organically certified since 2018, while receiving praise and awards on the quality of the wines.

Our Bourgogne Chardonnay “Vieilles Vignes” (old vines) is produced from 25 to 35-year-old vines located in the Côte de Beaune and Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. The diversity of their exposure and altitude allows us to work with a mosaic of plots. Consequently, we are able to achieve gorgeous aromatic complexity. The vines’ venerable age gives this wine particularly concentrated aromas, with straightforward and characteristic flavours.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The predominant white flower and citrus nose leads to notes of honey and dried fruit. The palate is very well balanced, skilfully blending vivacity and roundness.

Food pairing – This Bourgogne Chardonnay “Vieilles Vignes” with the charm of its aromatic palette, makes it a fine match for seafood, fish cooked in sauce, or simply prepared white meats.

Serving -at 12°C. (54°F). Ideally should be drunk when in the full fruitiness of its youth or can be laid for a few years to enhance its brioche hints.
