Thanks to its widely recognized « savoir-faire », Albert Bichot was entrusted by many customers, be they professional or not to bid and age Hospices de Beaune wines. As a result, we have been the number one buyer at the Hospices auction for almost 20 years. Every year we buy in average 100 barrels (pièces) within 30 different cuvées (wines and appellations). This rank can be explained by our expertise in the three key steps : selection, bidding and ageing Hospices de Beaune estate’s delicate wines.
Albert Bichot is a bidder at the Hospices auction since 1876. Now the top buyer for the last 20 years, this rank of honour is a proof of both our technical expertise and sharing strong values with the Hospices, as they are a real hallmark of Burgundy’s generosity and charity. We like to share this mind-set around us. In this sense, four of our customers have recently bought the pièce de charité, (presidents barrel) a very specific and prestigious barrel sold at the benefit of two charities each year and trusted us for ageing this very special wine that is more than any other one a symbol of generosity.
Albert Bichot is an independent, family-owned, maison founded in 1831. We own 6 exceptional estates and 100 ha (260 acres) of vineyards on the best plots of Chablis, Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune primarily. Our wines please wine-lovers all over the world for their finesse, elegance and respect of Burgundy terroirs.
