Tasting Notes:

Our Aloxe-Corton develops aromas with a dominant of wild woodland fruit (redcurrant and blackberry with floral nuances (lilies and jasmine). With a very supple tannic structure, this well-balanced wine has lovely pleasant velvety tannins with just a hint of sweetness. The finish is long and aromatic, reminiscent of the fruity aromas of the nose.

Aloxe-Corton is a well-reputed village which marks the end of the Côte de Beaune and the beginning of the Côte de Nuits.

Bichot practise sustainable viticulture, based on observation, prevention and paying attention to the complex balances found in nature. The soil is maintained responsibly, it is judiciously ploughed and fertilized using organic matter. They also encourage manual labour that boosts the plants' natural defenses.

The grapes are harvested manually and upon arrival in the hall a careful inspection and selection takes place, after which the grapes are de-stoned and transferred to yeast tubs by gravitational pull. Slow, temperature-controlled fermentation.

Aged for 14 to 16 months in 20% to 30% new oak.
