Story

Story

As early as 1831, Albert Bichot, a visionary and an explorer, traveled the world to introduce his great Burgundies to wine lovers. To perpetuate this pioneering spirit, they set out in search of new horizons. This quest led them to Limoux in the South of France, a region that they chose for its unique diversity: 4 Terroirs with different yet complementary Climates.

  • Oceanic Terroir : ELEGANCE – Alternating wet and dry periods, giving Vivacity and salinity
  • Mediterranean Terroir : POWER –  Hot climate with high levels of humidity providing Richness and intensity
  • Autan Terroir : GENEROSITY – Hot continental climate growing Fullness and opulence on the palate
  • Upper Valley Terroir : SUBTILITY – The coolest and latest-ripening terroir with low yields enables Harmony, concentration, roundness and acidity

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Deep cherry red in colour, Scents of black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant) combined with wild cherry and raspberry on the nose. Flavours of cherry on the palate with notes of pepper and menthol. A hint of cedar complements the fruitiness. Silky texture and impressive length. Complex, fresh flavours.
This wine is best enjoyed now, but it may be cellared for up to two years. We enjoyed it as an aperitif paired with tuna-tomato bruschetta
