Winemaker Notes

Burgundy Chardonnay "Secret de Famille" is produced with vines located in Côte d’Or region only, around extremely well-located vineyards on the outskirts of the villages well-known for their white wines (St Aubin, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet...). The 2017 Chardonnay opens with a nose dominated by hints of citrus and white flowers, and evolve in notes of honey and dried fruits. The palate is very balanced, skillfully blending vivacity and roundness. The appealing aromas and flavors of this Bourgogne Chardonnay "Secret de Famille" make it an ideal match for seafood, fish cooked in sauce or simply prepared white meats.

Decanter
This large and always enjoyable cuvée marries fruit from Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and St-Romain, and these fine origins show in the quality of the wine. It's very lightly wooded, with 70% of the total fermented in stainless steel. Balanced, spicy and mineral-edged.
JS 90
James Suckling
Attractive aromas of dried and caramelized pears, plus a kiss of vanilla oak, making this ripe and generous Bourgogne blanc easy to enjoy. The finish has nice freshness that pulls you back for more. Drink or hold.

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)

The most acclaimed region of Burgundy, the Côte d’Or is defined by a long, limestone escarpment beneath the ground's surface and is home to all of Burgundy’s most famous wines. While Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are produced throughout the Côte d’Or, the north tends to excel at Pinot Noir and the south, at Chardonnay.

The northern half of the Côte d’Or is called the Côte de Nuits. Here reside most of the Pinot noir Grands Crus vineyards of Burgundy—the only one farther south, in Côte de Beaune, is Aloxe-Corton.

The Côte de Beaune is the center all of the Chardonnay Grands Crus with the exception of Le Musingy, found in Chambolle-Musigny in the Côte de Nuits, which produces both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with Grand Cru status.

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.
