Winemaker Notes

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).

Young, it will accompany seafood. With more age; poultry and veal in sauces, dishes based on truffles and mushrooms, local cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

D 97
Decanter
A thrilling complexity of fresh almond, acacia, lemon, lime peel and seashell minerals underpinned by an austere, vibrant acidity. Opulent and rounded with a salty, savoury, incredibly long finish. Highly polished with ageing potential of 5-6 years at least.
JS 94
James Suckling
This is stunning for the power and precision it offers. Flinty and gently reductive grilled peaches and lime citrus on the nose. The palate has a very assertive piercing core of fresh lime, white peaches and green mangoes. Acidity delivers sorbet-like texture. Brilliant!
Barrel sample: 93-94
BH 93
Burghound.com
Here too the wood treatment is well short of invisible though once again it does not dominate the intensely floral aromas of mostly white-fleshed fruit and oyster shell. There is both good volume and concentration to the punchy mineral-driven medium weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the overtly saline finish. This is on the woody side but the oak doesn't sweeten the finish.
Barrel Sample: 90-93

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From a two-hectare parcel that runs from the bottom to the top of the slope, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchots is also showing well, revealing attractive aromas of white flowers, green apple and marzipan. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a racy spine of acidity and a precise, saline finish. Rating: 92+

WS 90
Wine Spectator
This walks a taut line between rich and racy, creating a framework for the apple, lemon and baking spice flavors. Just a bit shy on the finish. Drink now through 2024.

Albert Bichot Winery Video

Since 1350, the Bichot family has called Burgundy home. But, it was in 1831 that Bernard Bichot founded a merchant house bearing his name in Monthélie, a couple of kilometers south of Beaune. At the end of the 19th century, his grandson Albert Bichot took the family business into a new direction and created the winery, Maison Albert Bichot as we know it. The family heritage has been perpetuated from father to son since then. The family crest, consisting of a deer and antlers, has been synonymous with the winery since its inception.

Since 1996, Albéric Bichot has represented the 6th generation managing the winery. The winery’s mission is to utilize the best fruit possible to create the best wine and best expression of terroir. In the constant pursuit of accomplishing this mission, Albert Bichot has acquired 250 acres of vineyards in the most reputed growing areas throughout Burgundy. In addition to this expertise as a wine-grower, Albert Bichot carefully sources grapes with an extremely hands-on approach, in order to vinify many of its regional and village wines, enabling them to supply high quality wines with continuity. For these grapes sourced from our partner growers, quality, and a close partnership, are of the utmost importance.  

Albert Bichot owns 6 Domaines set at the heart of 5 great vinicultural regions that make up Burgundy: Chablis, Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune, Cote Chalonnaise, and Beaujolais. Each estate consists of vineyards cultivated with sustainable practices, as well as facilities, cellars and dedicated winemaking teams devoted to wines of that Domaine and region.

The 6 estates include: 

  • Domaine Long-Depaquit in Chablis 
  • Chateau Gris in the Cote de Nuits (Nuits-St.-Georges)
  • Domaine du Clos-Frantin in the Cote de Nuits (Nuits-St.-Georges)
  • Domaine du Pavillon in the Cote de Beaune (Pommard)
  • Domaine Adelie in the Cote Chalonnaise (Mercurey)
  • Domaine du Rochegres in Beaujolais (Moulin-à-Vent)

Chablis

Burgundy, France

View all products

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
