With Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation constitutes the prestigious Côte des Blancs. The Morgeot terroir encompasses several climates, neighboring the Morgeot abbey, to the south of the village.

In the Middle Ages, these territories depended on the abbey of Maizières, which then cleared the area to plant vines and build the necessary farm buildings.

It is sometimes said that Morgeot is to the Côte de Beaune what Clos de Vougeot is to the Côte de Nuits. Another particularity of this climate comes from its grape variety both in Chardonnay (white wines) and in Pinot Noir (red wines).

The nose is very fine and mineral, this wine develops aromas of green tea and citrus fruits. With aging, it evolves into notes of dried fruits and rare spices.

The palate is very intense, its body is full and structured with a slight dominant tannic that balances the whole. The aromatic persistence is remarkable.

The roots of this Burgundy family go back to the Middle Ages.

The House was only founded in 1831 by Bernard Bichot in Monthélie but it was Albert Bichot, the current name of the house, who settled it definitively in Beaune in 1912, in the heart of Burgundy, not far from the prestigious walls of the Hospices de Beaune , where the renowned Auctions are held every year.

The house currently owns the estates of Long-Depaquit en Chablis (65 hectares), Clos-Frantin in Nuits-Saint-Georges (7.3 hectares), such as Château-Gris (3.5 hectares), Pavillon en Pommard and a few others but not classified as Grand or Premier Cru that our house, faithful to its Charter, has not retained in its list of its Burgundy wines.

After a reasoned culture of the management of the vineyards shared with its wine-growing suppliers, after meticulously executed harvests, the wines are aged in barrels for 12 to 18 months. These barrels are of different origin (Tronçais, Allier ...), of different ages and toastings and are used according to their specificities to age the wine in an optimal way. A whole art that only the descendants of these old Burgundian families know and that they pass on like a precious heritage.

Albert Bichot is not only a personal wine heritage but also a heritage of close relationships with Burgundy winegrowers. It is also a heritage of know-how transmitted for many centuries. It is a diversity that commands admiration.
