Maison Albert Bichot

About the Producer

Region: Beaune

With a respect for their heritage, and an eye on the future, quality has never been better at Domaine Amiot. Arsène Amiot started acquiring vineyards in Chassagne in the 1920s including Caillerets and a few rows of Le Montrachet. Les Macherelles was added a decade later, along with Les Demoiselles in Puligny-Montrachet. By the time Thierry took over from his father Guy Amiot in 1993, the domaine had built up an enviable collection of holdings. They follow a hands-off approach in the vineyards and the cellar. Their whites are all about layered mineral flavours which are pure expressions of the terroir, while the reds show superb depth of supple fruit. The 2020 vintage is an outstanding year for the domaine, one of the best vintages we can remember tasting.

Tasting Notes

By James Snoxell, Fine Wine Buyer

2020 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots
£475 per 6 bottle case in bond

Les Chabiots lies above Les Amoureuses on shallow soils over limestone bedrock. On the nose, bright red fruits mingle with delicate spice scents. Smooth cherry and warm mulberry fruit flavours are supported by firm mineral tannins. A wine which always shows well from barrel. Drink from 2025.

2020 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru
£1030 per 6 bottle case in bond

South of Chambertin, this Latricières has an enveloping bouquet with subtle spice and exotic smoke notes. Layered sweet cherry and delicate redcurrant flavours are supported by fine, chewy tannins. Attractive and complex with good depth, there is plenty of ageing potential here. Drink from 2026.

2020 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses
£1295 per 6 bottle case in bond

Arguably a Grand Cru in terms of quality, Les Amoureuses lies down-slope from Le Grand-Musigny. Offering perfumed scents of wild strawberries and roses, very pure cassis and bright strawberry fruit flavours are balanced by refined, integrated tannins which provide definition. There is a lovely tension to this wine and superb length. One of Albert Bichot’s standout wines. Drink from 2026.
