Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and light

Its purple robe offers a fruity nose on notes of blackberry, strawberry and blueberry. On the palate, this wine presents a velvety and fleshy attack. Finish suave and velvety.

Features

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 ?

One single grape variety is cultivated on this domain of 3.5 hectare. It is the gamay. The domain has some “very old vines” having 80 to 100 years old.

Domain and appellation

  • Albert Bichot

    Founded in 1831, the Maison Albert Bichot owns 4 domains impleted in the 4 flagship areas of the Bourgogne region (Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise). It acquired recently the Rochegrès domain, ideally placed at the heart of the designation Moulin-à-Vent, in the north part of the Beaujolais. Nowadays, Albéric Bichot runs this family establishment since 1996.
     

    • Terroir: Vines are principally exposed south-east and come out on a poor soil made of pink granite very pure. Thus vines are compelled to take root very deeply to find the nutrients that are necessary to their growing.
       
    • Wine-making: Always harvested manually, grapes are partially destemmed. The process lasts for 18 days with 5 days of pre-fermentation using moderately the technique of the pigeage. It consists of mixing the solid pieces at the top of the tank with the liquid must. This method help oxygenating the wine. Half of the wine ages in tanks, the other half in barrels of 350 liters during 7 or 8 months.
