The wine trading company "Albert Bichot" was founded in 1831 by Bernard Bichot (1750-1850) in Meursault. His son Hyppolyte Bichot (1831-1908) donated the vineyard Volnay Cuvée Blondeau to the Hospices de Beaune, whose wines are still being auctioned today. In the third generation, Albert Bichot I. (1870-1952) enlarged the property by purchasing several small trading houses. He moved the cellars and the company headquarters from Meursault to Beaune. The company subsequently developed into the largest exporter of Burgundy wines. Today it is managed in the fifth generation by Albéric Bichot (born 1964). The company acts as a négociant éleveur, i.e. it purchases grapes from contracted winegrowers and markets the wines they produce under their own name. Bichot also acts as a vigneron (winegrower) and is owned by four prestigious wineries in Burgundy with 100 hectares of vineyards:

  • Domaine Adélie (Mercurey) with 4.2 ha
  • Domaine du Clos Frantin (Nuits-Saint-Georges) with 13 ha
  • Domaine Long Depaquit (Chablis) with 65 ha - founded in 1791
  • Domaine du Pavillon (Pommard) with 17 hectares

The white wines are fermented for three weeks in tanks in a chilled state to preserve their fruitiness. For the red wines, the intact grapes are macerated for three weeks. Barrels from Alliers and Tronçais are used for the ageing in barriques. The wide range of products includes wines from many famous Burgundian municipalities with renowned Grands Crus (after the municipality in brackets) and Premiers Crus. These are for example Aloxe-Corton (Les Languettes, Clos des Maréchaudes, Corton-Charlemagne), Chablis (Les Blanchots, Bougros, Les Clos, La Moutonne, Les Preuses, Les Vaudésirs), Chambolle-Musigny, Flagey-Echézeaux (Echézeaux, Grands Echézeaux), Gevrey-Chambertin (Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Latricières-Chambertin), Mercurey, Meursault, Monthélie, Morey-Saint-Denis, Montrachet (Bâtard-Montrachet, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, Montrachet), Nuits-Saint-Georges, Pommard, Volnay, Vosne-Romanée(Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant) and Vougeot(Clos de Vougeot)

Furthermore, wines from the regional Burgundy appellations Beaujolais, Bourgogne, Côte de Beaune-Villages, Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Nuits-Villages are produced and marketed. Last but not least, there are also wines from the wine-growing regions Languedoc, Provence and Rhône. These are for example the appellations Côtes du Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Languedoc. The wines are exported to over 100 countries.
