Albert Bichot Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perriere 2018


Estimated delivery between May 28 and May 30.

The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Ch?teauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche).

Alb?ric 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.

Fixin (pronounced "Fissin") is located in the C?te de Nuits between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin.

The "Manoir de la Perri?re" was built in the 12th century by the Monks of C?teaux, who were the first to detect the potential of this 5-hectare (12 acres) clos. There is no Grand Cru in Fixin, yet, thanks to its exceptional climate and its ideal exposure, it has already been compared to its neighbour, the Chambertin! Indeed, it has a south-east exposure, at an altitude of 350 to 380 meters, and its calcareous soil is homogeneous.

Tasting notes from the producer...

The nose features notes of black cherry and wild strawberries. Ample and very fine, it offers silky tannins. Its mineral hints remind the characteristics of the soil it comes from.
The natural maturity of the fruit is balanced by the freshness of this terroir of altitude. On the palate, the aromas are complex, with fruit, liquorice and juniper berry.
