Puligny-Montrachet is one of the greatest representations of Côte de Beaune wine. It lies between Meursault to the north and Chassagne-Montrachet to the south and produces white wine that is held in very high regard throughout the world, so it's no surprise that enthusiasts flock to the region to see how and where their beloved Chardonnay is produced.

This bountiful Burgundian Chardonnay is an ideal accompaniment to fish, chicken and rich cheese sauces. It has opulent stone fruit and nutty aromas of apricot and almond. There's a hint of candied fruit and wildflowers. Expect a long refreshing finish.

Enjoy this wine now, or see what it's like in a few years. If you can wait that long.

Refined, richly structured Chardonnay wine from one of Burgundy's best houses.

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 Region

Burgundy's Côte de Beaune is the southern half of the famous Côte d'Or, perhaps the world's most famous wine growing slopes, south of the town of Beaune. More whites are produced here than reds, with world famous names including Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet as well as the generic Bourgogne Blanc wines. The central part of the Côte de Beaune is one of the most popular wine destinations in the world. World-renowned for its white wines, Puligny-Montrachet is indisputably one of the most magnificent representatives of a Burgundian wine. This Bichot vineyard touches the limit of Meursault to the north and Chassagne-Montrachet to the south.

Prawn Croquettes

A great snack or tapas dish, these prawn croquettes just need a drop of fresh, fruity rosé or Burdundian Chardonnay to set them off!

Pea And Goats Cheese Risotto

Risottos pair well with both reds and whites so consider the other ingredients when choosing a wine match - the combination of sweet peas and salty goats cheese call for a vibrant white with lots of fruit flavour - try Albert Bichot's Puligny Montrachet .

Gorgonzola stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Pancetta

Plump for a ripe, fruity white such as Burgundian Chardonnay to contrast with the salty tang that the pancetta and cheese bring to the dish.
