Albert Bichot Morgon Les Charmes

£19.30

The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912.

Convinced that the quality of wine depends on the quality of the grapes, the present head of the family firm, Alberique Bichot has focused on developing the upstream control that was undertaken in the 1980s. He secured new vineyards, and began to expand the vinification capacity and the ageing cellars in 2010. The company’s vineyards now total 6 estates that cover Burgundy from north to south. Their wines are award winning and are all fantastic expressions of the terroir of Burgundy.

This classic Morgon is a great example of an approachable yet complex light-bodied red from Beaujolais.
