Domain and appellation

  • Albert Bichot

    Founded in 1831, Maison Albert Bichot has four fields located in the 4 main regions of Bour-gogne: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. It is Alberic Bichot who is now head of this family business since 1996.

     

    • Terroir: Mercurey owes its name to a temple built by the Romans in honor of the god Mercu-ry. Spread over 650 hectares, with stony brown soils rich in clay, the appellation has 85 "climats" and 32 premiers crus.

     

    • Viticulture: A biological approach is favoured in the vineyard. Each domain has a team of experts with specific knowledge of their plots. The harvest is done manually.

     

    • Vinification: The fermentation maceration lasts from 15 to 20 days in conical vats of thermo-regulated oak. The wine is then aged in oak barrels (15-20% new) for 14 to 16 months.
