To the south of the Beaune appellation, on the borders of Pommard, lies the "Les Epenottes" vineyard. The 1.5 acres produce this stunning Pinot Noir, with a candied cherry and blackcurrant notes. The palate leads to silky tannins and reflects more intense black fruit notes from the nose - blackcurrant and blackberry. Subtle hazelnut, chocolate and liquorice flavours come through and will continue to develop with age, from the time spent in oak.

IWC's 'Red Winemaker of the Year', Alain Serveau, recommends that you pair this classic Burgundian Pinot Noir with game, red meat and cheese.

Stunning handpicked Pinot Noir that's reminiscent of a wine from neighbouring Pommard, with the addition of Beaune's feminine touch.

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

Burgundy's Cote de Beaune is the southern half of the famous Cote d'Or and the historical capital of Burgundy wines. More whites are produced here than reds, with world famous names including Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet as well as the generic Bourgogne Blanc wines. To the south of the Beaune appellation, the "Les Epenottes" vineyard is located on the edge of the Pommard appellation so it is not surprising that its terroir is very similar to that of the neighbouring Pommard "Epenots" appellation, but with a more feminine touch, finer structure and subtle silkiness.

Aubergine & Mushroom Bourguignon

A vegan version on the classic Beef Bourguignon. Just as rich, just as rustic and in no way inferior. A glorious warming dish that invites earthy light and medium bodied reds with a hint of age. Head straight for Burgundian Pinot Noir.

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 Domaine du Pavilion's Beaune Les Epenottes.

Feijoada

A robust, flavoursome Portuguese pork stew that's not for the faint-hearted, this needs a juicy, structured red wine to stand up to the porky flavours. Try younger quality Burgundy or New World reds.
