The Wines Of Maison Bichot Wednesday 11/02/15
Hosted by Delphine de la Fouchardiere
The Oxford Wine Company, 165 Botley Road, Oxford, OX2 OPB.
I remember my first taste of the wines of Bichot; I had 27 bottles as samples on my dining room table late one evening and was blown away by the precision and balance across the range. I was delighted then when the lovely Delphine contacted me and asked if we could arrange a tasting of these superb wines. This was our first tasting of 2015 and certainly set the bar very high. To a sell out crowd we presented 6 wines from around Burgundy. The Chablis and Viré Clessé whites were enjoyed with people liking the sophistication and understated fruit style. Whilst all the reds were enjoyed the standout was the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots which has poise, elegance and incredible balance. The £77 price point made this tasting even more special!
