Jean Bouchard Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir
Coastal mountains and hills bordering the Mediterranean coast between the Pyrenees and the Central Massif of France. Complex clay-rich lime soils of the Jurassic and Cretaceous eras, bordered by alluvions.
4 to 8 months, partly in oak casks to mellow the wine, partly in stainless steel vats for the fruit finish.
Very deep and dark ruby-red colour. Its nose is fresh and fruity with aromas of cherry, licorice and sweet spices. Full and generous, it shows good length on the palate.
The Maison Albert Bichot is one of these legendary Negoce Houses of Burgundy. It is arduous to summarize in a single page such an institution with all its intricate complexity and expertise accumulated over two centuries. This Beaune family company has served private clients in France and abroad since times when wine was delivered Bichot_albericby the cask only. This respectable “Maison Beaunoise” was funded in 1831 and had its start in Meursault. It is still owned today by the Bichot family and now in its 6th generation, it is managed by Albéric Bichot
