Made by Red Winemaker of the Year 2017 at the International Wine Challenge 2017. Pommard wines are amongst Burgundy’s most robust and tannic. The Premier Cru vineyard of "Les Chaponnières" lies adjacent to the village of Pommard, at the heart of the appellation. The berry aromas and soft spice compliment the oak and result in an elegant wine with well-integrated tannin. A delicious match for red meat and game dishes.

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 well suited for red wines. Its wines are among Burgundy’s most robust and full-bodied and are more powerful than the 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.

These classic gamey flavours combined with salty ham and nutty puree call for a rich, decadent, earthy red wine with a liberal dash of spice.

Venison Stew with Sage-infused Glazed Carrots

Lamb Chops and Thyme Potatoes
