Albert Bichot Vire-Clesse 2021

Albert Bichot Vire-Clesse 2021

93 Points - Wine & Spirits. The Viré-Clessé appellation, located between Tournus and Mâcon, is the most recent of the Mâconnais region’s village appellations (1999), exclusively made from Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards, for the most part, are planted on hillsides, where a local type of soil derived from white limestone called “cray” can be found. This delicious Vire-Clesse is from one of Burgundy's finest. Predominant aromas of fine intense fruit, the nose reveals a touch of lemon, mango and subtle floral notes. The palate boasts well balanced structure and beautiful minerality which gives way to a certain touch of sweetness on the finish, giving pleasing length.

Wine Press

93 Points - Wine & Spirits

"Immediately bright, fresh fruit drives this wine’s lovely intensity and length of flavor. Its lively fresh chamomile and butter cream flavors feel cool and that coolness lasts. Here’s a Mâconnais chardonnay with complexity in its dust up of minerals and its crunch of crusty buttered bread. Delicious."

Food Pairing

This wine pairs beautifully with all fish, seafood and white meats in sauce, or strong cheeses. 

Serving & Cellaring

Serve between 12°C and 14°C.

This wine is ready to drink or may be laid down for 3 to 5 years or more.

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.
