Old but respectable. The Clos Frantin wines are not negotiant wines but are made with Bichot’s own grapes and are therefore more reliable. 1977 was a pretty average year though, hence the low price point.
Family led since 1813, Albert Bichot is a producer and negociant in Burgundy, France, producing top quality wines across the regions of Chablis, Côte d’Or, Côte Chalonnaise and Beaujolais. They are one of the larger negociants that manage to work sustainably, with all production going officially Organic Certified from 2018 and much of the premium vineyard land worked manually. Bichot have gone from strength to strength in recent years with their Chardonnay-based white wines, particularly those produced in Chablis which show much elegance and finesse, whilst their Pinot Noir and Gamay red production in Mercurey is unrivalled in terms of value for money. Unlike other large negociants, the Bichot style is not homogenous or bland, but rather terroir-driven, with character found in every wine produced, even the village-level Bourgogne wines. Of course, their Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines will be sure to show even more varietal character and complexity.
