Made by 'Red Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge 2017. Think redcurrant, blackcurrant, plums and cherry laced with hints of white pepper and kirsch. This Santenay 1er Cru "Clos Rousseau" is an ideal match for red meat, game and cheese from Burgundy such as Epoisses. These foods can handle the fruitiness of this wine and will compliment its long finish.

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

In the southernmost part of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, the 392 hectares (969 acres) of Santenay’s vines take root. The name of the appellation refers to Roman times when the village was renowned for its thermal baths and its natural spring, "Santinae aquae", meaning "healing water" in Latin."Rousseau" has always been a very common surname in Burgundy and still is today.

Beef Stew and Dumplings

A hearty rich stew calls for a medium bodied, savoury red, rather than very rich, full bodied styles. Try Bordeaux and Burgundy reds for lighter, elegant styles.
