Albert Bichot Bourgogne Aligoté


The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie and the current winery was born.

Bourgogne Aligoté is an appellation produced throughout Burgundy though it is mostly found in the vineyards around Auxerre, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Nuits. The majority of the grapes come from carefully selected terroirs that yield fresh, mineral wines. Fresh nose featuring scents of white flowers and fruit (apple, pear, lemon…) underscored by a touch of minerality. This wine is fresh and lively on the palate, featuring nice balance and a lovely, refreshing finish.
