Albert Bichot Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (2262)

Albert Bichot Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (2262)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Gevrey-Chambertin
Pinot Noir

The soil is clay and limestone marl and Bajocian crinoidal limestone. He is poor and shows a thin layer of silica surface debris from the valley Grissard. "Tricière" also mean "poor land." These characters give the wine with notes of wild berries, spices subtle and complex.

Professional Reviews

Steen Ohman

The Latriciere Chambertin 2012 is a step up in intensity and focus from the Laveaux. In the nose rich and sweet red and dark berry fruit with the oak quite forward at the moment. On the palate quite intense fruit and minerality – it’s long and focused with a nice purity and intensity. Really like the expression of terroir in this wine – a lovely Latriciere in the making.


Robert Parkers's Wine Advocate

The 2012 Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru is straight-laced on the nose: prim and proper black fruit with tertiary notes developing. The palate is very fine with a chalky opening, crisp acidity and slightly brittle tannins. But the fruit profile is very pleasurable with blackberry, a touch of mulberry and raspberry. It actually builds nicely in the mouth and challenges the Chambertin in terms of length. Look out for this as it is one of Bichot’s top performing 2012s.
