Producer/négociant Maison Albert Bichot was founded in Beaune in 1831 and remains family-owned, with Albéric Bichot currently at the helm. Despite being a significant player in Burgundy (it’s the leading buyer at the celebrated Hospices de Beaune auction), Maison Albert Bichot leads the way in sustainability and manages to maintain the ethos and accessibility of a much smaller artisanal grower.
The “Les Charmes” vines are planted on a renowned 100-hectare (247-acre) limestone plateau. Albert Bichot Horizon Pinot Noir is aged partially in used oak which gives a textural, fleshy wine – well suited to pairing with food or enjoyed on it’s own. Fruits are selected from Albert Bichot’s renowned ‘Les Charmes’ vineyard located in the Mâconnais.
