Château Gris is a walled castle that has vineyards both within the grounds and on the surrounding chalky terraces, where the name 'Les Terrasses Blanc' originates. Just 1.65 acres of vines that overlook the castle and town of Nuits-Saint-George produce this stunning floral Chardonnay wine with hints of toast and beautiful acidity.

The 20-year-old vines create an elegant wine with a hint of wood from the time spent in barrel.
Pair it with fish and shellfish, the structure of the wine also allow it to stand up to fuller, creamy sauces if that's suits you better.

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

The Côtes de Nuits is the northern part of the famous Côte d'Or, Burgundy's classic red wine region, producing rich, complex wines from the Pinot Noir grape. This region is large in stature but small in size, with vineyards stretching from the lighter styles of Marsannay in the north to the full-bodied Nuits St Georges in the south, with these two villages just 15 miles apart. In Nuits-Saint-Georges, only 7.3 hectares produce white wines, including 4.3 hectares of Premier Crus. Bichot's 0.67 hectares are located on the high terraces of the hill, above the 'The Gray Castle' that was built in the 18th century in the middle of the vineyard.

Baked Stuffed Aubergine With Walnut and Roquefort

With a lot of strong, rich flavours in this baked dish, you need to match the salty cheese with acidic tomato, savoury aubergine and nuts. Try a medium red with enough fruit flavour to contrast with the saltiness in the cheese or a fuller bodied white that's seen some oak, a beautiful flavour contrast. We'd lean towards a Chardonnay.

Prawn Croquettes

A great snack or tapas dish, these prawn croquettes just need a drop of fresh, fruity Burgundian Chardonnay.

Cauliflower Steaks with Olive and Herb Salsa

On trend and animal-friendly. Cauliflower steaks are vegan, nutritious and delicious. Especially with this Mediterranean salsa. It's impressive enough to be the focal point of the meal or will pair beautifully with fresh meat or fish. But, first and foremost, eat these cauli steaks with a glass of Les Terrasses Blanc by Chateau Gris.
