In Burgundy, the term "climate" is used to designate different localities benefiting from various geological and climatic conditions.
Domain and appellation
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.
