Bichot 2012 Chambertin Header
"Who could be better than Rousseau in 2012?" you ask incredulously.
I suspect few will answer: "Why, Domaine du Clos Frantin a.k.a. Albert Bichot," "but wow, this is just a stunning expression of Chambertin. And before you cart me off to the asylum, yes, it did garner the highest average score from the group of tasters and won by quite some distance. Everything you know is wrong, eh?" Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 30 October 2015
 
Well that is a big call! Bichot Chambertin walloping Rousseau Chambertin!

But blind tastings have a habit of throwing up surprises. After all a glimpse at the label is worth a lifetime of experience.

So for those not caught up with stigma of the label today we have the last 10 bottles of a serious wine certain to delight.

Bichot's 2012 Chambertin is a world-beater. At the 2012 "Burgfest" Burgundy tasting it universally defeated Rousseau's Chambertin. 
Either way there is no question that both a great wines. The only difference is the price. The Rousseau sells for $1695.00 a Bottle. We offer the Bichot at $625.00 - that's over $1000.00 cheaper. Per Bottle.
We have 10 bottles in stock. Order this week and secure some bottles at what was the Pre Arrival discounted price of $625.00.

Bichot ChambertinNeal Martin - Wine Advocate (at the Burgfest Tasting): 
I would rather not regurgitate the cliché, whereby praise is lavished by dint of grandeur; for example: it's Chambertin, so it must be good. Not necessarily. Yet the flight of Chambertin was akin to a procession of kings dressed in fabulous robes, marching into a palace and without a word, showing just who is boss in this appellation. It started with a very regal 2012 Chambertin from Rossignol-Trapet, whose wines are so much better than they once were and yet remain relatively well priced. Then the Armand Rousseau upped the ante further with a Chambertin that shimmered with tension and poise...but hold the front page...the third bottle was even better!

Everything you know is wrong, eh

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chambertin Grand Cru has a dense, fruit-driven bouquet that does not possess the detail of Rousseau's Chambertin 2012. Wild strawberry mingles with cranberry and dried orange peel notes that gain intensity in the glass, but not quite the precision. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, citrus fresh in the mouth with touches of blood orange. Perhaps the true quality of this wine is unveiled because it is far superior than the recalcitrant nose. There is a touch of bitterness on the finish, but that merely lends this Chambertin tension. Extraordinarily long and vital, this was one of the huge surprises of the blind tasting. 97 Points

There is no question that the Bichot Chambertin is wonderful wine at a very reasonable price in today's Burgundy world. Put a bottle or two in the cellar and reap the rewards in a decade or two. The way top Grand Cru Burgundy is increasing who knows what a bottle will cost in 2027.
