Albert Bichot owns four estates set at the heart of four great viticultural regions that make up Burgundy; Chablis, Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cote Chalonaise.

 

The jewel in the crown, at least for me, is the Domaine du Frantin in the Cote du Nuits. The Domaine du Frantin owns 13 hectares in some of the finest appellations including an unsurpassed selection of Grand Crus. It was purchased by Bichot in 1969 and since then a constant program of improvement has been undertaken. As Burghound says “...the Clos Frantin wines have made huge strides in the last few years and the comments and scores reflect this progress.”

 

Fertilisers and weed killers have been replaced by compost and ploughing. The respect of the soils, rigorous pruning and green harvesting when necessary help to obtain good quality fruit in limited quantities. The wines are made in a historical building located at the entrance to Nuits-Saint-Georges.

 

As is the case through much of Burgundy the new generation has brought renewed enthusiam and a level of skill that has resulted in a rapid rise in quality. Their modern methods sees an array of wines that have received excellent reviews in the wine press.
