O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2017

The nose of this Chambolle-Musigny features redcurrant and strawberry scents, which evolve toward to more complex aromas of figs and leather. The palate is extremely elegant, beautifully structured and there is good balance between the soft, silky tannins and well-integrated, supple oak.

Albert Bichot

Located between Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis, at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the name of the small village of Chambolle-Musigny is derived from the name of the ancient Celtic village, “Cambola”. A venerable Côte de Nuits appellation, “Les Amoureuses” is certainly the most famous of Chambolle-Musigny’s 24 Premier Crus. As its name would suggest (Les Amoureuses = the female lovers), this wine is delicate and feminine, providing a great deal of emotion. Soil: Calcareous clay. Vinification: Temperature-controlled conical oak vats for 20 to 28 days. Ageing: 100% in oak barrels (50% new barrels), for 14 to 16 months.

Albert Bichot

Headquartered in Beaune, Albert Bichot, which has twice been voted by the International Wine Challenge as the best winery in the world for its production of red and white wines, now has several areas in Burgundy. There are six properties in total, the Domaine Long-Depaquit (Chablis), the Domaine du Clos-Frantin and the Château-Gris (Côte de Nuits / Nuits-Saint-Georges), the Domaine du Pavillon (Côte de Beanes / Pommard), the Domaine Adélie (Côte Chalonnaise / Mercurey) and the Domaine de Rochegrès (Moulin-à-Vent / Beaujolais). In addition to these areas, the winery also invested in a project with its own land in the Languedoc, in the south-east of France, more precisely in the Gardie Valley, where it can produce the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes with subtlety and elegance close to what is found in Burgundy, being harvested after a long maturation. In each property there is an independent vinification structure and an expert winemaker in that terroir / climat, responsible for the production of the first day in the vineyards until the wine ready. Nothing of a “superenologist” making all the wines equal. With a new winery since 2014, more ecological, Château Long-Depaquit, located in the heart of the village of Chablis in Yonne, is a trend in the fields of Albert Bichot. It has assets of 65 hectares (10 Grands Cru) where the vines are cultivated with a sustainable approach, with income control and non-interventionist vinifications in the search of authentic, mineral and elegant wines. In addition, they use the soil in a way to maintain the expression of each terroir. “The most important thing is to observe, not act fanatically, to learn about nature, with humility, this is what my grandfather taught me and I still do,” concludes Abich Bichot.
