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.

One of the great appellations of the Côte de Nuits both in terms of size and reputation, Gevrey-Chambertin is characterised by a wide variety of different terroirs. No white wines are found here, only Pinot Noir is cultivated. The soil in this part of the appellation is composed of brown limestone and yields classy, fine, elegant wines. The vineyard is located at the northern part of the appellation, at the top of the hill where it benefits from optimal exposure and on gently sloping terraces.

With structure and some firm tannins, this wine is on the dry side. It has black fruits that will develop over time, and certainly show now with a juicy background. The acidity is refreshing even through the solid tannins. Drink from 2020.
