2018 Bourgogne Vieilles Vignes "Pinot Noir" Albert Bichot
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir “Vieilles Vignes” (old vines) is crafted from grapes grown on vines that are between 25 and 30 years old and are located in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The varying exposure and altitude of these vineyards allow us to create this mosaic of parcels, resulting in this wine’s beautiful complexity. The venerable age of the vines gives the wine its remarkably concentration, with straightforward, characteristic flavours.
