From the excellent Albert Bichot, a rare chance to secure this outstanding vintage Burgundy. Their Santenay from the celebrated 2015 offers silky red berry fruit around a core of firm tannins, now softened with age. Delicate, complex and nuanced.
This leading family owned and run estate have been making exceptional Burgundy since 1831, their wines characterised by elegance and delicate nuance. The house owns over 100 hectares of sustainably farmed vineyards, many of which hold Premier and Grand Cru status. This fine, mature Pinot Noir comes from vineyards in Santenay, at the southernmost tip of Beaune. Plots that hug neighbouring Premier Cru land make deliciously well priced wines. 2015 was an exceptional vintage, one that is well worth snapping up. The weather gave impressive concentration to the Pinot Noir with ample, fleshy, ripe fruit and impressive depth of flavour. With over a year in oak, there is subtle smoky spice to ripe red fruits. Open early and decant. Ideal with duck.
"Pairing of a superb vintage and a renowned domaine, this 6-year-old Santenay is pure pleasure"
