Winemaker Notes

The nose is highly aromatic and evocative of ripe red fruit (cherry), which evolve towards fine, floral then spicy notes, finishing on a touch of oak. The first palate is dominated by the roundness and fullness along with elegant tannins. The finish is well balanced, fleshy, delicate and pure, which is due to this particular terroir.

The Rochegrès Moulin-à-Vent is a fine accompaniment to red meats, as well as poultry and mild cheeses.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Acidity and richness give this wine an opulent character. Ripe blackberry fruit are shot with acidity, still young and exuberant. The wine needs to soften and fill out to reveal its true intensity. Drink from 2020.
JS 91
James Suckling
A highly structured Moulin-à-Vent with a ton of black cherries and blackberries, plus a hint of smoke. Rich and tannic, but with the typical, fresh acidity of Beaujolais that packs quite a punch. Drink on release.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Integrated tannins support the focused profile of ripe raspberry and cherry puree notes, with licorice and violet accents. Spice and mineral details chime in on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 100 cases imported.

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)

Beaujolais Wine

Burgundy, France

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais exist though most is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Beaujolais-Villages, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior section are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
