Roses are red, violets are blue, my heart belongs in Burgundy and so does yours.
The Queen of Burgundy. Royal ruby in colour with a nose that exudes rose petals, forest floor, black cherry and a touch of mushroom. Irresistibly soft on the palate, the wine is everything we look for in a royal red Burgundy.
Burgundian legends; the Bichot family settled in the region in 1350. The wine business was founded in 1831 by Bernard Bichot, and his son, Hippolyte Bichot, bought the first vines. Clearly deciding that they weren’t going to beat “Hippolyte Bichot” as a name, the next three generations were named Albert Bichot. Now sixth-generation scion Alberic Bichot runs the place with respect for traditions and an eye to the future. He compares himself to the "conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together.”
