Albert Bichot Santenay Blanc 2019
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast. In the southernmost part of Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, the 392 hectares (969 acres) of Santenay’s vines take root on the first slopes of the Mont de Sene hill. The name of this appellation refers to Roman times when the village was renowned for its thermal baths and its natural spring, "Santinae aquae", meaning "healing water" in Latin. Notes of white flowers (acacia) and opens on lemon and candied pineapple. The palate is rich and mineral with a nice salinity, which brings freshness and energy. The aromas of elderberries and lily are completed by citrus fruits. Subtle notes of hazelnut and gingerbread assert the personality of this terroir wine.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This soft, smoothly textured wine is rich with spice, vanilla and creamed-apple and pear flavours. The wine is generous, warm in its structure and will be ready from 2022."
The nose is redolent of white flowers (acacia) and opens on lemon and candied pineapple. The palate is rich and mineral with a nice salinity, which brings freshness and energy. The aromas of elderberries and lily are completed by citrus fruits. Subtle notes of hazelnut and gingerbread assert the personality of this terroir wine.
This wine is both intense and fresh and will pair perfectly well with oily fish, white meat and hard cheese.

About the Producer
In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912.
The second Albert Bichot, who was born in 1900, was a pioneer of international commerce. North America, Asia, Oceania… He travelled incessantly in order to introduce our wines, which were already recognised as being among the best, to wine lovers around the world.
In the second half of the 20th century, his four sons, Albert, Bernard, Bénigne and Jean-Marc, inherited this know-how. A new era of expansion began with the construction of a large ageing cellar, a new bottling centre and winery. Our wines were available in all of the world’s continents.
