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
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.
