Description

The minerality and aromatic richness of a Burgundy red wine

The estate

Although the history of the Bichot family dates back to 1214, the family only settled in Burgungy in 1350. The trading house was created in Monthélie in 1831, under the impetus of Bernard Bichot, and grew rapidly during the 19th century, thus becoming the official supplier to the Royal Swedish Court. An independent, family-owned business, Albert Bichot is one of the fine names that has left its mark on the wine industry and the influence of Burgundy wines around the world. Since 1996, the family’s 6th generation has been running the company, harmoniously blending modernity with family tradition.

Today, the Albert Bichot family owns more than 100 hectares of vines that spread from the north to the south of Burgundy and are grouped under 6 prestigious estates: Domaine Long-Depaquit, located in Chablis, in the Yonne, Domaine du Clos-Frantin and Château Gris, both located in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Domaine du Pavillon, in Pommard. Dedicated to the production of Mercurey wines, Domaine Adélie was acquired by Albert Bichot in 2013. The estate is named after the first name of Albert Bichot's daughter, who was born in 2003, thus perpetuating the family legacy from one generation to another. The beautiful vineyard of Domaine de Rochegrès in the Moulin À Vent appellation joined the family business in 2014.

The vineyard

Situated on a plateau behind the famous Côte de Nuits, the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits benefits from maximum sunlight at an altitude of 300 to 400 metres, due to the fact that the vineyards is south-east facing.
