An exemplary winery

Founded in 1831, the House is directed by members of the Bichot family, settled in Burgundy since 1350. To date, Albéric Bichot, director of the domain, is making the transition between tradition and innovation. He largely contributed to the switching from conventional to organic agriculture, he is also one of the proudest representative of the Burgundian terroir. The House is composed of 6 domains with a total area of 100 hectares lastingly exploited with a deep respect for nature. For the wine produced to remain gustatively faithful to its centenary terroir, the intervention of men on the vines is limited.

This crowning is a reward for all the work made by numerous generations and it strengthens the place of the winery among the best producers of wines of the world.
