Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its pale ruby colour brings out an attractive aroma that opens with notes of red fruit and mineral. As for the taste, this wine is balanced, wrapped and with a nervous finish and vibrant tannins. A fresh length and a lovely wine.



Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

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

    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.
