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).

Serving suggestions: The mineral purity of this wine will beautifully accompany Japanese cuisine using raw fish (breem sushis 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.

Serving and keeping: Serve between 11 and 13°C. This Grand Cru can be drunk in its prime youth or can be lied down for a dozen or so years to develop hints of honey and spring meadow mushrooms.

Wine & Spirits
This Chablis reached extreme ripeness, yet the fruit's structural integrity has seemed only to intensify. The wine's powerful architecture sets firm boundaries, and the flavors fill them completely, layered with bass notes of toasted hazelnut and grilled pineapple rising to higher tones of sweet cream, gooseberries and lime. It's fascinating how a chardonnay can take a shape, one that will likely expand and evolve with long bottle age.

Weighty, full-bodied, full of ripe yellow fruits. Here’s a wine that is going to be a powerhouse, packed with intense flavors, touched by wood and a crisp edge. The aftertaste leaves minerality along with the ripe fruit.

A subtle trace of wood frames white flower, lychee nut, iodine and spice nuances that introduce very rich, sappy and palate staining flavors that are impeccably well balanced on the powerful and opulent finish. This is so rich that it could be almost heavy were it not for the very firm lemon and grapefruit-infused acidity. A very fine and classy effort.

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)
