The roots of this family of Bourgogne go back to the Middle Ages.
The House was only founded in 1831 by Bernard Bichot in Monthélie, but it was Albert Bichot, the current name of the house, which permanently installed it in Beaune in 1912, in the heart of Bourgogne, not far from the prestigious walls of Hospices de Beaune, where the very famous Auction Sales take place every year.
The house owns to date the Domaines of Long-Depaquit in Chablis (65 hectares), of Clos-Frantin in Nuits-Saint-Georges (7.3 hectares), as Château-Gris (3.5 hectares), of the Pavilion in Pommard and some others but not classified as Grand or Premier Cru that our house, faithful to its Charter, has not retained in its list of its wines of Bourgogne.
After a reasoned cultivation of the vineyards shared with its winegrower suppliers, after meticulously executed harvests, the wines are aged in barrels for 12 to 18 months. These barrels are of different origin (Tronçais, Allier...), of different ages and toast and are used according to their specificities to age the wine in an optimal way. A whole art that only the descendants of these old Burgundian families know and that they transmit to each other like a precious heritage.
Albert Bichot, it is not only a personal wine heritage but also a heritage of close relationships with the Burgundian winegrowers-deliverers. It is also a heritage of know-how transmitted for many centuries. It is a diversity that forces admiration.
Description Albert Bichot Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru "Champ Gain" 2018.
With Chassagne-Montrachet to the south and Meursault to the north, Puligny is one of those great terroirs of Côte de Beaune, in Bourgogne, that provide some of the world's finest white wines,
The Champ Gain climat extends over long parcels close to the Hameau de Blagny area and below the lieu-dit La Garenne.
Its name comes from Old French and means "plowable, cultivable land, where one can earn".
The year 2018, after two difficult vintages, can be considered a perfect vintage that combines quality and quantity.
After an arRosé winter, spring and summer were Secs, but fortunately sprinkled with welcome showers. As a result, the harvest produced grapes of great ripeness and perfect health.
The wines develop aromas of Secs fruit, almonds, apricot and hawthorn, complemented by fresh menthol notes.
The palate is supple and structured, laid on vanilla, chocolate, apple and bitter orange. It is harmonious, balanced and leads to a clean, refreshing finish.
The finesse and simplicity, typical of this climate, will cut through the generosity of blue-veined cheeses or even accompany fine fish in beurre blanc sauce.
