Winemaker Notes

Of infinite delicateness, the express buttery notes, aromas of baked apple, citrus fruit, pineapple, linden blossom, juniper, cinnamon and flint. Hints of honey are also common. The concentration, distinction and balance of this Chardonnay are pleasantly surprising. The finish is complex and intense.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling
A very classic Corton-Charlemagne that’s very powerful, but very cool and fresh with a super mineral personality. Concentrated but finely etched palate with great acidity that drives the very long, stony finish. Better from 2021.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A lean, sinewy white, featuring peach, pear, mineral and pastry flavors, bound up on the dense, tensile structure. Well-marked by the toasty oak now, yet saturated with flavors that come back in waves on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2032.
D 94
Decanter
Like fellow Beaune-based négociant Joseph Drouhin, Albert Bichot source their Domaine du Pavillon Corton-Charlemagne from Les Languettes on the Aloxe-Corton side of the hill. This is another wine with quite a bit of power, as well as sweet oak and patisserie notes, but there's a delightful freshness and zip at its core. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027
BH 94
Burghound.com
This too is quite restrained with its cool aromas of green apple, petrol, white flower and background wisps of various citrus nuances. There is fine volume to the delicious, intense and markedly stony larger-scaled flavors that are at once caressing yet powerful before culminating in a clean, dry, focused and serious finale. This too will need at least a few years to unwind and develop more overall depth.
Barrel Sample: 91-94
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Domaine du Pavillon reveals aromas of crisp green orchard fruit and citrus oil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, nicely layered palate with good depth and tangy acids.

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 Beaune Wine

Cote d'Or, Burgundy

A classic source of exceptional Chardonnay as well as Pinot Noir, the Côte de Beaune makes up the southern half of the Côte d’Or. Its principal wine-producing villages are Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.

The area is named for its own important town of Beaune, which is essentially the center of the Burgundy wine business and where many negociants center their work. Hospices de Beaune, the annual wine auction, is based here as well.

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.
