Premier Cru Pommard is one of the most sought-after Pinot Noirs in the Burgundy region. They're a more masculine, powerful, style compared to that of Beaune and Volnay. The Les Chaponnières vineyard is exclusively Pinot Noir and at the centre of the Pommard appellation.

The wines of this appellation are renowned for being more robust in style, this premier Cru being no exception. The berry aromas are bright and have soft spicy notes creating rich aromatics. This with age beautifully holding its own for 10 years or more, if you have the discipline to leave it that long.

Match this masterpiece with game meat and bird, even a sauce with a little spice.

89-91 points - Allen Meadows, Burghound.com

Available to buy as a single bottle
Pinot Noir from the heart of the Pommard appellation and made by IWC 'Red Winemaker of the Year' Alain Serveau. The aromatics and berry fruit notes are a glorious match for any game dish.

The Producer

The Bichot family settled in the Chateau of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, Burgundy in 1350. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe, or biche in French. Their wine heritage started in 1831 with Bernard who was a wine trader. It was his son, Hippolyte, who brought the first vines in Volnay and grandson, Albert, who rooted the Bichot name in Beaune from which the family business escalated. Since 1996 Bichot has been under Albéric Bichot who is completely focused on developing the future of the company without compromising family tradition or quality.

The Winemaker

The winemakers of Albert Bichot are world renowned. They were awarded 'Red Winemaker of the Year' in 2004 and 'White Winemaker of the Year' 2011. The team have recently been awarded the title of 'Red Winemaker of the Year' 2017 at the International Wine Challenge 2017. This new recognition rewards their teams’ daily efforts and the continuous attention paid to every detail from vine to finished wine and uncompromising choices in terms of quality.

The Region

Pommard has a terroir very well suited for red wines, specifically Pinot Noir. They are more powerful than wines from neighbouring Beaune and Volnay. They are often aged for longer than other areas of Burgundy to allow the tannins and structure to integrate with the fruit and spice character of the wines. The Premier Cru Les Chaponnières borders the village of Pommard, at the heart of the appellation, in the Côte de Beaune where the slopes are gentle and the vines exclusively Pinot Noir.

Venison Stew With Sage-Infused Glazed Carrots

Stew just like your Grandma used to make. A warming, earthy venison stew with a rich and decadent gravy is the perfect food match for medium to full-bodied reds. Try a bottle 'Les Chaponnieres' with its hint of oak and age, it will complement the earthy root veg and intensity of the meat and gravy.

Mushroom Risotto and Caramelised Onions

The wholesome, rich and earthy flavours of mushroom risotto pair perfectly aged and oaked reds. As this risotto is baked it gives you the perfect opportunity to crack open a bottle of your favourite Pommard from Albert Bichot and let it breathe before serving.

Roast Pheasant With Lemon And Rosemary

Contrast the delicate savoury flavours in this dish with a light to medium-bodied red with good fruit intensity. You don’t want to go for overly tannic styles which will overpower the meat so stick to soft, supple styles such as Burgundian Pinot Noir.
