Domaines Albert Bichot
Silky, well structured and spicy
A famous appellation from the Côte de Nuits, known as much for its size as for its great wines, Gevrey-Chambertin boasts a wide diversity of terroirs. There is no white wine here, only Pinot Noir is cultivated. The vines grow in marl-based soil covered with scree and red silt from the plateau. The gravel contributes to this wine’s elegance and delicateness while the clayey marls, which are rich in shellfish fossils lend body and firmness to the wine.
Another big favourite of ours as this is all about elegenace and committment to purity, the memory of the fruir lingers and this is a wine with age will only continue to get better and better. This is Brune's favourite and we can see why, you should too.
Aromas of ripe red and black fruit on the nose with notes of oak and spice. Over the years it will develop more animal notes, like musk and fur. Silky, structured, tannic and well-balanced on the palate. The same fruit found on the first nose reappears on the finish.
