Enjoy it now, or hold for up to 10 years. Decanting is optional, up to 30 minutes before serving.

Albert Bichot is one of Burgundy’s stalwart wineries, producing a range of elegant, characterful wines from the region’s signature grapes - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Maison Albert Bichot’s history in the region dates back as far as 1831 when Bernard Bichot began selling wine in Monthélie. Now, the winery is under the guidance of Albéric Bichot, a stellar winemaker with six generations of knowledge and tradition to draw from.

Morey-Saint-Denis is dominated by the Pinot Noir grape, and none express the terroir more wonderfully than the grapes grown in the Premier Cru vineyard of “Les Sorbets”. The name comes from the French word for rowan trees “sorbiers”, which still dot the picturesque landscape today.

The wine opens up with a fruity nose, exhibiting notes of wild raspberry, sour cherry and strawberry, complemented by earthy notes of leather, forest floor and oak. In the mouth, “Les Sorbets” shows an excellent structure and some tartness, with swirling flavours of redcurrant, raspberry, cranberry and liquorice. The finish is fruity and long-lasting. Some time spent ageing in the bottle will reveal more pungent flavours on the nose and subtle spice flavours. Consider pairing this wine with refined meat dishes or fine semi-soft cheeses, like Comté or Gruyère.
