Processing...

Albert Bichot's  100% Bourgogne Pinot Noir Secret de Famille ("Family Secret") is crafted from a carefully sourced blend of grapes from prestigious terroirs of the Côte de Nuits (around Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin, Marsannay…) They treat these wines as “villages” wines, where yields are restricted and ageing is adapted for each wine.

Tasting:  This charming wine features predominant fruity aromas of blackcurrant and wild red berries. Velvety and silky, this wine boasts soft, balanced structure on the palate, which end with a delicate finish reminiscent of red fruit.

Food/wine pairing:Enjoy this wine with roasted or grilled meats, poultry, vegetables and mild cheeses.

A PERSONAL NOTE: My Bichot contacts  insisted I try this wine which I originally thought was a little "Corny".  I was amazed that this wine was of such high quality. It's the perfect example of what a great winemaker can do with a few barrels of wine that should be blended rather than sold as a "Cru". The kind of wine the Family would drink as an everyday wine.  Simply Charming and delicious.

Serving and keeping: Serve at 15°C - 16°C (59°F - 60°F). This wine is best enjoyed within 3 to 5 years of purchasing in order to appreciate all of its fruitiness.
