Albert Bichot - Julienas - Roche Granit

About This Item

Overview:  The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fiefdom of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). ALBÉRIC BICHOT, THE NEW GENERATION After having gone off to discover the world, (from the Arctic to Adélie Land), Albéric Bichot joined the company in the early 90s and took over its management in 1996. Though he fully respects family traditions, he is completely focused on the future. He compares himself to the "conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together over a common project". The challenges are numerous: converting to organic viticulture in the Côte d'Or vineyards, on-going adaptation to new markets, increasing the prestige and exposure of Burgundy wines and much more. Convinced that the quality of wine depends on the quality of the grapes, he has focused on developing the upstream control that was undertaken in the 1980s. He secured supplies, and began to expand our vinification capacity and the ageing cellars in 2010. The company's vineyards now total 6 estates that cover Burgundy from north to south.
