Pale straw yellow in colour with golden hue. The bouquet brings a cloud of limestone and flinty minerality over heavy aromas of green apples and pears with hints of pineapple and banana. The palate is wonderfully rich with a rounded mouthfeel and vibrant acidity. There's notes of stone fruit, grapefruit, and orange, but it finishes with a crisp minerality.

The Bichot family has been established in Burgundy since 1350 with the doe as their emblem. It was in 1831 that the family, led by Bernard Bichot, entered the world of wine and created a negociant house. In 1912 Albert Bichot, conscious of his family history, moved the negociant house to Beaune and his son, also named Albert, was the first to travel the world and promote the merit of the family wines. In 1937 the House became the official suppliers of the Swedish court. This legacy has been passed from father to son, and since 1996 the sixth generation of the Bichot family, embodied by Albéric Bichot, has run the house. The House has twice been honored at the prestigious International Wine Challenge, once in 2004 as Red Winemaker of the Year and again in 2011 as the White Winemaker of the Year.
