Albert Bichot Secret de Famille Pinot Noir 2013
Pair with roasted or grilled meats, poultry, vegetables and mild cheese such as farmhouse Brie or Tomme de Savoie. It will go perfectly well with a saute of lamb with spices, mushroom-filled tomatoes, or with a courgette gratin.
Since 1996, Albéric Bichot represents the 6th generation managing the company. Guarantor of the family tradition, he is driving the House towards its latest challenges and is adapting it to changing markets and consumer demand. Under his momentum, an upstream quality control strategy was developed at the beginning of the 1980s. In the logic of getting the best fruit to create the best wine and best express terroir, Albert Bichot has acquired vineyards in the most reputed growing areas. In addition to this expertise as a wine-grower, Albert Bichot carefully sources grapes in order to vinify and age its “négoce” wines and therefore control quality as far as possible. To each “sub-region” corresponds a "Domaine" which refers to not only owned vineyards but also to a standalone structure dedicated to wines of the area including viticulture and vinification teams and facilities (equipment, cellars)
Albert Bichot owns four estates set at the heart of four great viticultural regions that make up Burgundy: Chablis, Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cote Chalonnaise. Each estate consists of vineyards cultivated with sustainable practices, as well as facilities and teams devoted to the making and aging or the region's wines.
Under the direction of Alain Serveau, cheif winemaker, our teams include vineyard managers who oversee viticulture and cellar masters who supervise vinification and aging.
The four estates are:
Domaine du Clos-Frantin-Nuits Saint Georges
Domaine du Pavillon-Pommard
Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent yet underappreciated dry wines...
Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent yet underappreciated dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.
Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.
