Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its light straw color offers a nice nose of citrus with floral notes. On the palate, this wine is round with a coated and savory finish.
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.

In Burgundy, the term "climate" is used to designate different localities benefiting from various geological and climatic conditions.
Domain and appellation
Founded in 1831, the Maison Albert Bichot owns 4 domaines located in the 4 leading regions of Burgundy, in Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. Today, Albéric Bichot has been at the head of this family business since 1996.
- Terroir: Located on a plateau under the Côte de Nuits appellation, the Hautes Côtes de Nuits AOC rests on clay-limestone soil, at 300 to 400 metres above sea level.
- Viticulture: The vineyard promotes an organic approach. Each domain has a team of experts with specific knowledge of their plots. Harvesting is done by hand.
- Vinification: This wine is derived from the acquisition of grapes or grape must. The alcoholic fermentation is achieved in oak barrels (35%) and thermos-regulated stainless steel tanks (65%) for a period of 5 to 6 weeks. The wine is then aged in vats (50%) and oak barrels (50%).
