Domaines Albert Bichot

Beaune, France

Founded on a rich historical tapestry that spans centuries, Domaines Albert Bichot represents a family deeply rooted in Burgundy’s wine making heritage. With origins dating back to 1214 and settling in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois in 1350, the Bichot family has remained steadfast in their commitment to the land, symbolized by the timeless image of a doe (biche) adorning their coat of arms. Today, their unwavering dedication to the terroir and sustainable practices drives every aspect of their winemaking philosophy.

Respecting the environment and nurturing the terroir are paramount at Domaines Albert Bichot. Their sustainable viticulture approach revolves around careful observation, prevention, and maintaining the intricate natural balances. Responsible soil management, judicious ploughing, and organic fertilization ensure the vineyards thrive harmoniously. Embracing manual labor enhances the plants’ innate defenses, while the knowledgeable teams at each estate diligently oversee the vineyard’s development.

The same meticulousness is extended to the partner growers’ plots, setting a benchmark for excellence. Long-term collaborations enable precise objectives to be set, focusing on the grapes’ health, optimal yields, and ripeness during harvest time.

During the vinification process, Domaines Albert Bichot intervenes minimally, cherishing the legacy bestowed upon them. Their goal is to create wines that embody the terroir and village characteristics while delivering expressive, pleasurable, and emotionally captivating experiences.

With estates located in Burgundy’s major viticultural regions, each equipped with dedicated wineries and cellars, Domaines Albert Bichot ensures meticulous vinification and aging of their precious wines. The winery in Beaune, centrally located, specializes in regional appellations and underwent a complete renovation in 2008. It adheres to the same tried-and-true methods employed at the estates.

Whether it’s the grapes grown in their own plots or those sourced from partner growers, Domaines Albert Bichot treats each with equal care. Every wine bearing the Albert Bichot signature benefits from their extensive expertise and unwavering attention to detail.

With utmost care, the wines are gently transferred from vinification vats or barrels to the cellars, employing the force of gravity. Within the cellars, the wines mature in casks for 12 to 18 months—a pivotal period where time and expertise converge, enabling the wines to acquire their unique character, reveal their personality, and unleash their full potential.

The selection of oak barrels, varying in origin and degree of toast, adds discreet yet complex nuances to the wines. This artful aging process exemplifies patience, a commitment to tasting, and a profound respect for the craftsmanship that has preceded it.

Domaines Albert Bichot stands as a testament to the enduring passion and unwavering dedication of a family committed to producing exceptional wines. Embracing tradition, respecting the land, and pursuing excellence define their winemaking journey. With every bottle, Domaines Albert Bichot invites you to savor the culmination of their artistry, patience, and reverence for the craft.
