Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir « Vieilles Vignes » (old vines) is produced with vines aged between 25 to 35 years old in the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits areas, on clay-and-limestone soils. The diverse exposure and altitude of these areas allow us to craft this mosaic of vineyard parcels, producing the beautiful complexity of this wine. The venerable age of the vines gives this wine a special aromatic concentration, frank and characteristic flavours which are regularly acknowledged at prestigious contests. It is in Burgundy where the Pinot Noir varietal was born and became a synonym for elegance and finesse throughout the world. The selection and vinification of grapes from two ”sub-regions” enable a diversity of terroirs and consequently of characteristics which are found transposed within the aromatic complexity of this wine.

Food pairing
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, a duck terrine or meat cooked on a skewer. Serving and keeping Serve at 14 -15°C (57-59°F). Preferably drink within 3 to 5 years of purchasing to fully benefit from the fruitiness. On ageing it will develop animal hints (leather, spicy).

SINCE 1831 The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Chateauneuf-en-Auxois. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthelie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912. The second Albert Bichot, who was born in 1900, was a pioneer of international commerce. North America, Asia, Oceania… He travelled incessantly in order to introduce our wines, which were already recognized as being among the best, to wine lovers around the world. In the second half of the 20th century, his four sons, Albert, Bernard, Benigne and Jean-Marc, inherited this know-how. A new era of expansion began with the construction of a large ageing cellar, a new bottling centre and winery. Our wines were available in all of the world’s continents. ALBÉRIC BICHOT, THE NEW GENERATION After having gone off to discover the world, (from the Arctic to Adelie Land), Alberic Bichot joined the company in the early 90s and took over its management in 1996. Though he fully respects family traditions, he is completely focused on the future. He compares himself to the ”conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together over a common project”. The challenges are numerous: converting to organic viticulture in the Cote-d’Or vineyards, on-going adaptation to new markets, increasing the prestige and exposure of Burgundy wines and much more. Convinced that the quality of wine depends on the quality of the grapes, he has focused on developing the upstream control that was undertaken in the 1980s. He secured supplies, and began to expand our vinification capacity and the ageing cellars in 2010. The company’s vineyards now total 6 estates that cover Burgundy from north to south.
