Although the Bichot family settled in the region in 1350, Albert Bichot has a history stretching back to 1831, when it was founded by Bernard Bichot. Today the producer is one of Burgundy’s most respected, making wines from both its own vineyards and with purchased fruit.
Today the property is run by Albéric Bichot, who has transformed the reputation of the company since he took over in 1996. Alain Serveau was appointed as technical director, who has improved work in both the vineyard and winery. There is now a focus on sustainability, while they have also moved to put dedicated teams and wineries in each of the regions the company works in, stretching the full length of Burgundy, from Chablis to Beaujolais.
The domaine wines are bottled under the name of various properties: Long-Depaquit in Chablis, Clos Frantin and Château Gris in the Côte de Nuits, Du Pavillon in the Côte de Beaune, D’Adélie in Mercurey and Du Rochegrès in Moulin-à-Vent.
