The 2019 red Burgundy vintage has received some great reviews. The Financial Times reports that Bernard Hervet, former director of Faiveley and Bouchard, two of the biggest maisons in the region, went so far as to say that it could “perhaps rival 1865, the greatest vintage of all”. That's a big call but one thing is for sure is that it is a very good vintage indeed.
Neal Martin, as part of his reviews of the Bichot 2019's states "Their wines have performed impressively in recent years. Much of that is down to head winemaker Alain Serveau, who joined as technical director in 1995. Bichot’s wines should be taken more seriously than some cognoscenti give them credit for. I found their 2019 whites good. Among the reds there are some standouts such as the Grands-Echézeaux and Vosne-Romanée Malconsorts, equal to some of the more artisan names for which you might be paying double the price."

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot 2019
Landed Price $247.50
Pre Arrival Price $210.50
17 bottles left
Jasper Morris MW
Palish lemon, touch of banana, concentration more than finesse, a little bit of heat on the palate, but with a good concentration of fruit too. 92 Points
Subtle but easily perceptible oak influence surrounds the aromas of petrol, rosemary oil and white flowers. The wood is also perceptible on the palate of the medium-bodied, dense and relatively powerful flavors that possess very good depth and persistence on the noticeably rustic finale. 2015+. 90-92 Points
Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes 2019
Landed Price $245.00
Pre Arrival Price $208.00
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"
A core of fruit and a little tightness surrounding it. More depth and minerality to this flavour. A wine with more evident structure but also much more evident finishing intensity – this is super and something of a keeper – I’d be patient with this one.
Jancis Robinson
Cask sample. Really very approachable and true to climat with a light savoury undertow. Follows the current trend to make Meursaults a bit less austere. Impressive finish. You could drink this now! It's not the most concentrated nor the quirkiest premier cru Meursault but I would order this in a trice if I found it on a wine list in a distant land. 16.5/20
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Gain 2019
Landed Price $300.00
Pre Arrival Price $255.00
18 bottles left
Only the second vintage of this wine. Champ Gain is high on the slope - some 360 metres above sea level. The thin soil produces a wine of elegance with fine acidity and a mineral tang. What Puligny is all about!
(from vines on the Truffières side of the vineyard). A cooler and prettier nose is comprised by notes of mineral reduction, citrus confit, green apple and acacia blossom. There is excellent intensity to the beautifully delineated middle weight flavors that culminate in a clean and very dry but not really austere finale. This is really quite good and worth considering. 2026+. 92 Points
Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Vide Bourse 2019
Landed Price $365.00
Pre Arrival Price $310.00
9 bottles left
Vide Bourse is a continuation of the Grand Cru Batard-Montrachet. Many describe it as a 'petit Batard'. The soil is heavy and full of stones which provide raciness to this powerful Premier Cru. This is a very serious Premier Cru!
Here the vaguely exotic nose of white and yellow orchard fruit is both more elegant and more complex. Once again there is fine volume and density to the more refined medium weight flavors that possess slightly better precision if not quite the same power on the youthfully austere finale. This attractive effort needs to develop better depth, but the underlying material appears to be present for that to occur. 90-93 Points
Pavillon Corton-Charlemagne Trophies
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2019
Landed Price $550.00
Pre Arrival Price $467.50
Bichot have a 1.2 hectare parcel in the climat Les Languettes. The vineyard is 280 metres high and is just below the treeline at the top of the Hill of Corton. 
International Wine Challenge 2021
Pale white gold colour. Magnificent nose of cocnut cream, melon, honey, lime and white blossom. Palate has almost eye watering concentration. Long, firm, mineral finish. A superb and serious Grand Cru! 96 Points, Gold Medal, Trophies for the Best Corton-Charlemagne, Best White Burgundy, Best French White Wine and Best International Chardonnay
James Suckling Tasting Report
In spite of the ripe-orange and exotic-fruit character that pours from the glass, there’s nothing superficial about this wine. Thanks to its generosity and very attractive fruit, this makes a very friendly initial impression on the palate, then the intense minerality comes through, building to a serious crescendo at the very fresh finish. Drink or hold. 96 Points
Gevrey-Chambertin Les Murots 2019
Landed Price $170.95
Pre Arrival Price $145.00

Wine Spectator
A rich style, this red boasts cherry, raspberry, earth and tobacco flavors. The tannins are robust yet integrated, leaving a dense matrix of support on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2033. 91 Points
Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perriere Monopole 2019
Landed Price $170.95
Pre Arrival Price $145.00
11 bottles left
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
From a wholly owned, walled vineyard, this wine offers richness as well as good acidity in its red-cherry fruits. Backed by wood aging, the wine has density and a poise that will allow it to age well. Drink from 2024. 
92 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"
The domaine does the work, the team here keep watch but are very happy with the place and the work but still offer a little consulting. From multiple sectors, roughly the same each year to get the best feeling of the Clos
A more composed, redder-fruited nose. Wide, super impact in the mouth – fine intensity and waves of lovely flavour in the middle and finishing flavours. That’s a really delicious finish too. The nose needs to become more expressive for ‘great’ but the palate is already showing all it needs to!
Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Les Sorbets 2019
Landed Price $199.95
Pre Arrival Price $169.95
Jasper Morris MW
Deep crimson, more redcurrant with raspberry, then darkens. The palate shows the wine in its true colours: it has tension within the fruit, a powerful thread with some minerality and a medium density finish. 90-93 Points
Decanter Magazine
The gentle extraction and use of whole clusters has produced a wine with deep plummy fruit, while one-third new casks give a sweet spice quality to the aroma. Dense and well balanced, this should be approachable young and will continue to drink well for a decade. From the band of premiers crus which run through the village, just below Clos de Tart. Drinking window 2021-2029. 91 Points
Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Chateau Gris Monopole 2019
Landed Price $225.00
Pre Arrival Price $191.00
11 bottles left
Jasper Morris MW
Picked on 20/21 September at 27 hl/ha. Deep purple, with a profound fresh plum and raspberry nose. Starts discreetly, then builds to a very considerable volume of fruit behind, well integrated acidity, impressive length. Very well done. 92-95 Points
James Suckling Tasting Report
An impressive Nuits-Saint-Georges with ripe forest-berry aromas that are nicely accentuated by the smoky oak. The earthy notes unfold slowly as it aerates. Very good ripeness and substance, but also very good freshness. The finish is long and complex. Drink or hold. 93 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"
A super nose this time, open, deep, floral above – yes! Extra width and a little extra depth to this flavour. This sample showing a lot of the barrel today – but the shape, energy and constitution of this wine are really excellent. The finish likewise, only here the first impression of some tannin to remember the wine by…
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers 2019
Landed Price $350.00
Pre Arrival Price $297.50
10 bottles left
The second vintage of this wine. Les Sentiers lies immediately below the Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares. A good contrast with Bichot's other Chambolle 1er Crus Les Amoureuses and Les Chabiots which lie at the opposite end of the commune.
Aged 14 months in barrel with 50% new oak. This Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru boasts a sophisticated nose that is redolent of ripe cherry. A highly aromatic wine with intense, generous flavours and excellent cellaring potential.
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots 2019
Landed Price $350.00
Pre Arrival Price $297.50
14 bottles left
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"
Continuity of Musigny above Amoureuses.
Freshness and width to this nose – a little cherry-stone impression too. Supple, very modestly cushioned but also a wine of overt complexity and interest. A certain seductive style to this wine, always mouth-watering with interesting extra anecdotes. A delicious finishing, slowly fading, diminuendo. That’s a beautiful wine.
Not surprisingly this is aromatically more elegant with its cool aromas of essence of red currant, cherry, lavender and discreet spice wisps. There is excellent verve to the quite finely detailed flavors that exude evident minerality on the chiseled, youthfully austere and sneaky long finale. This is lovely and very Chambollesque; indeed it’s pretty much textbook Chabiots. 2031+. 90-93 Points
Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Rouges 2019
Landed Price $475.00
Pre Arrival Price $415.00
6 bottles left
Subtle but by no means imperceptible wood frames an airy and layered mix of plum, red cherry, clove, violet and a hint of anise. There is again very good vibrancy to the delicious, caressing and much more mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that exhibit focused power on the youthfully. 91-93 Points
Corton Clos des Marechaudes Grand Cru MONOPOLE 2019
Landed Price $335.00
Pre Arrival Price $285.00
6 bottles left
Sarah Marsh MW "The Burgundy Briefing"
Alluring perfume, summer-fruit seductive. Broad, swaggering, juicy palate, thickly textured. Definitely deep-pile. Rich succulence contrasts with a dark, quartz bite. It has some grunt on the finish. 2025-32. 94 Points
Jasper Morris MW
33 hl/ha. Bright full purple. Clearly a little deeper in colour than the 1er Cru version, which was planted with the same vine material in the same year, and more concentrated in red fruit bouquet. The palate is more savage, the acidity is much more present along with the tannins. The rock is much closer to the surface here. A muscular wine, which needs to be picked early. 92-95 Points
(a ~1.9 ha monopole that is split between ~.5 ha classified as grand cru and the remaining 1.4 ha as 1er). This is compositionally similar to the 1er but notably more restrained. The powerful and muscular bigger-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate density and ample minerality on the more persistent finish. It’s clear there is a bit more overall potential here compared to the 1er. 2034+. 93 Points
