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.

The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune is located on a plateau behind the famous Côte de Beaune at altitudes ranging from 300 to 400 metres. Exposure varies from south to east, which allows the vines to appreciate a maximum amount of sun.
