Winemaker Notes

Beautiful bright yellow robe with golden-green reflections. Les Blanchots is remarkably elegant. The nose is dominated by a bouquet of white flowers (Lillies, roses). The mouth is ample and generous with great harmony. The finale is very mineral with discreet hints of sea air and smoke (flint, pencil graphite).

The mineral purity of this wine will beautifully accompany Japanese cuisine using raw fish (breem sushi or pollack makis for example). Alternatively grilled or oven-stewed white meats are perfect, in a tender and unctuous register. For cheese, small goat cheeses or cream cheese with fresh herbs are just perfect.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
This definitely is an elegant effort with its pure essence of marine breezes, iodine, mineral reduction, pear and white flowers where the wood support is a background nuance. There is excellent mid-palate concentration to the mineral-infused medium weight flavors that exhibit plenty of saline and citrus characters on the mouth coating finish. This is somewhat less complex than I usually find but it is certainly a delicious and satisfying effort that should reward mid-term cellaring.

Albert Bichot, Chablis, Burgundy, France
Image of winery
Since 1350, the Bichot family has made Burgundy its home. Their emblem is a deer and the family only became attached to vines and wines during the 19th century. In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a merchant house bearing his name in Monthélie, a couple of kilometres south of Beaune. At the end of the 19th century, his grand-son Albert Bichot brought new impulsion to the business and definitively installed its headquarters in Beaune. The family heritage has been perpetuated from father to son since then.

Since 1996, Albéric Bichot represents the 6th generation managing the company. Guarantor of the family tradition, he is driving the House towards its latest challenges and is adapting it to changing markets and consumer demand. Under his momentum, an upstream quality control strategy was developed at the beginning of the 1980s. In the logic of getting the best fruit to create the best wine and best express terroir, Albert Bichot has acquired vineyards in the most reputed growing areas. In addition to this expertise as a wine-grower, Albert Bichot carefully sources grapes in order to vinify and age its “négoce” wines and therefore control quality as far as possible. To each “sub-region” corresponds a "Domaine" which refers to not only owned vineyards but also to a standalone structure dedicated to wines of the area including viticulture and vinification teams and facilities (equipment, cellars)

Albert Bichot owns four estates set at the heart of four great viticultural regions that make up Burgundy: Chablis, Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cote Chalonnaise. Each estate consists of vineyards cultivated with sustainable practices, as well as facilities and teams devoted to the making and aging or the region's wines.

Under the direction of Alain Serveau, cheif winemaker, our teams include vineyard managers who oversee viticulture and cellar masters who supervise vinification and aging.

The four estates are:
Chateau Long-Depaquit-Chablis
Domaine du Clos-Frantin-Nuits Saint Georges
Domaine du Pavillon-Pommard
Domaine Adelie-Mercurey.
