Winemaker Notes

Fruity and refreshing, the nose features aromas of red fruit, anise, tobacco, cherry and menthol. Rich and well balanced on the palate, this wine is robust yet crisp. The finish is intense and flavorful with notes of candied fruit and spices.

This wine is ideal with red meats, big game and ripe or full-flavored cheeses.

A fresh wine for this site with cool aromas of lemons and herb. Then a rather closed, firm palate the red fruit just able to balance this serious structure. Long, dry and earthy finish. Try to wait until 2023.

Paler purple, with good fresh intensity and some new oak. Tightly wound, backward, not over-ripe, definitely based around red fruit. Some vanilla in play from the oak, which perhaps reduces my conviction.

BH 92
Once again the nose is quite floral with its earthy and gamy nose of various dark berries and newly turned earth and humus. The textured and supple flavors possess good volume even though they are not especially concentrated though there is solid muscularity on the dusty and very, very austere finish. I like the textured mid-palate mouthfeel but the level of austerity is such that this will not be for everyone - lots of patience required.
Barrel Sample: 89-92
V 92

The 2017 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is precise and detailed on the nose, displaying very good intensity and a slightly darker fruit profile than Castaignier's Clos de la Roche. It seems to lose a bit of definition in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit and fine definition and salinity, although the finish does not quite have the breeding or the volume of the aforementioned. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting. Best After 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)

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

While Morey-St-Denis of Burgundy might not get the same attention as its neighbors, Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south, there is no reason why it shouldn’t. The same line of limestone runs from the Combe de Lavaux in Gevrey—all the way through Morey—ending in Chambolle.

There are four grand cru vineyards, moving southwards from the border with Gevrey-Chambertin: Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Clos des Lambrays, Clos de Tart and a small segment of Bonnes-Mares overlapping from Chambolle. Clos de la Roche is probably the finest vineyard, giving wines of true depth, body, and sturdiness for the long haul than most other vineyards.

Pinot Noir from Morey-St-Denis is known for its deep red cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Aromas of spice, licorice and purple flowers are present in the wines’ youth, evolving to forest and game as the wine ages.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
