Expect something really special with this Vosne-Romanée. Selected from the finest Pinot Noir vines in the northern Côte de Nuits.

The wine has been aged in oak barrels, up to 30% new barrels, for 16 months. This has encouraged the opulent, rich tobacco and tea notes along with some spice. These secondary notes from the oak complement the red fruits and have encouraged a silky, filled palate and long, aromatic finish.

Enjoy this fine wine with classic Burgundian dishes of game, red meats and cheese.

Available to buy as a single bottle
IWC 'Red Winemaker of the Year', Alain Serveau, creating fine red Burgundy to pair with classic dishes such as Boeuf Bourguignon.

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 Pinot Noir vines located in the northern Côte de Nuits produce the most renowned reds of Burgundy, Romanée-Conti and Richebourg wines. 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. Both the villages of Vosne-Romanée and Flagey-Echézeaux in the north are authorised to use the Vosne-Romanée appellation name and the Bichot vines are located within these villages.

Roasted Quail Wrapped in Prosciutto

The classic gamey flavours of quail combined with salty ham call for a rich, decadent, earthy red wine with a liberal dash of spice. The silky tannins and fullness of this Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir are a fine match.

Tartiflette

The rich combination of potato, cheese, bacon and garlic could stop anyone in their tracks so pick ripe reds with good acidity or structured whites which will both cut through the delicious stodge! Quality Burgundian Pinot Noir will be an absolute treat.

Frikkadels: South African Meatballs

These South African spiced meatballs are an easy pairing for red wines - the beef and pork combination will suit most medium-bodied reds but head for Merlot or Pinot Noir blends for the right combination of soft fruit and structure.
