Always reliable, and well-priced, with a number of standout cuvees, Domaines
Bichot continues its good run of form with 2018 vintage. The Premier and Grand
Crus from Clos Frantin, the flagship domaine, and increasingly the maison
itself, continue to produce benchmark wines which offer real value and
character, whist Domaine Pavillon’s Beaune Clos des Mouches’, is the white
Burgundy of choice for the cognoscenti. As Neal Martin comments, Bichot can make
“really quite delicious, complex wines that often surprise people in blind
tastings when not swayed by the label.” Once again our selections, from AOC
Bourgogne to Richebourg, all show the precision, typicity and expressive,
generous fruit expected of their level and mean there is something from the
portfolio to suit all tastes and budgets. Head winemaker Alain Serveau is
pleased that in 2018 the wines achieved sufficient concentration and structure
whilst maintaining freshness and supple fruit.

"From plots across the Cote de Beaune, including Meursault, Puligny and Saint
Aubin, and half aged in barrel (of which 20% is new) this achieves an impressive
roundness and mid-palate depth for its modest level. Apples and smoky pears, and
just enough bright acidity to keep the fruit on its toes. Light and juicy, very
drinkable straight away." Tom, Wine Guru

90/100, Tim Atkin
