Since 1350, the Bichot family has made Burgundy its home. Their emblem is a deer and the family only became attached to vines and wines during the 19th century. In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a merchant house bearing his name in Monthélie, a couple of kilometres south of Beaune. At the end of the 19th century, his grand-son Albert Bichot brought new impulsion to the business and definitively installed its headquarters in Beaune. The family heritage has been perpetuated from father to son since then.

Since 1996, Albéric Bichot (aged 44) represents the 6th generation managing the company. Guarantor of the family tradition, he is driving the House towards its latest challenges and is adapting it to changing markets and consumer demand. Under his momentum, an upstream quality control strategy was developed at the beginning of the 1980s. In the logic of getting the best fruit to create the best wine and best express terroir, Albert Bichot has acquired vineyards in the most reputed growing areas. In addition to this expertise as a wine-grower, Albert Bichot carefully sources grapes in order to vinify and age its "négoce" wines and therefore control quality as far as possible.

To each "sub-region" corresponds a "Domaine", which refers to not only owned vineyards but also to a standalone structure dedicated to wines of the area including viticulture and vinification teams and facilities (equipment, cellars)

Today, the House owns 100 hectares (245 acres) of vineyards in Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise thanks to four exceptional estates:

  • Domaine Long-Depaquit in Chablis (65 ha ; 160 acres)

  • Domaine du Clos Frantin in Nuits-Saint-Georges (13 ha ; 32 acres) for the Côte de Nuits

  • Domaine du Pavillon in Pommard (17 ha ; 43 acres) for the Côte de Beaune

  • Domaine Adélie in Mercurey (4.5 ha ; 10 acres) for Côte Chalonnaise

Iconic names along with some monopoles have contributed to the family recognition. As one of the benchmarks in Burgundy, Albert Bichot's wines are served at the best restaurants in France and in over one hundred countries throughout the world.
