Albert Bichot Chambolle-Musigny 1C Les Chabiots 2013

Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
BH90~93, WA90~92
Pinot Noir

A brooding and inexpressive nose mixes notes of red pinot fruit with a lovely array of spice and floral elements, in particular violets. There is a wonderfully refined mouth feel to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that are finer but less obviously mineral-inflected than the Sentiers on the impressively persistent finish. This is very "Chambollesque" in style and should drink well young as well as reward 8 to 10 years of cellaring.- BH90~93

The 2013 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru les Chabiots has an attractive bouquet with pure red cherry and pomegranate scents intermingling with rose petals and a smudge of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-judged acidity and bright red berry fruit. It clams up a little on the finish, but this should age with style as there is clearly precision here. This is an impressive Chambolle '13. - WA90~92

The Winery

The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (doe).

In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the center of Beaune once and for all in 1912.

The second Albert Bichot, who was born in 1900, was a pioneer of international commerce. North America, Asia, Oceania… He traveled incessantly in order to introduce our wines, which were already recognized as being among the best, to wine lovers around the world.

In the second half of the 20th century, his four sons, Albert, Bernard, Bénigne and Jean-Marc, inherited this know-how. A new era of expansion began with the construction of a large aging cellar, a new bottling center and winery. Our wines were available in all of the world's continents.


After having gone off to discover the world, (from the Arctic to Adélie Land), Albéric Bichot joined the company in the early 90s and took over its management in 1996. Though he fully respects family traditions, he is completely focused on the future. He compares himself to the "conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together over a common project".

The challenges are numerous: converting to organic viticulture in the Côte-d'Or vineyards, on-going adaptation to new markets, increasing the prestige and exposure of Burgundy wines and much more.

Convinced that the quality of wine depends on the quality of the grapes, he has on developing the upstream control that was focused in the 1980s. He secured supplies, and began to expand our vinification capacity and the aging cellars in 2010.

The company's vineyards now total 6 estates that cover Burgundy from north to south.
