The 2019 Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a very pure bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit, sous-bois and pressed violets, gaining in intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins and well-judged acidity. Very harmonious, culminating in a velvety, intense finish laced with blue fruit. A gorgeous Griottes from Bichot. Vinous Media | 93-95 VM(Maison Albert Bichot Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru Red) This too is quite firmly reduced and unreadable. More interesting are the denser and richer medium-bodied flavors that flash good power on the youthfully austere and overtly structured finale that also displays excellent persistence. Like several wines in the range, this will need to develop better depth to achieve the top end of my projected range, but it has the potential to do so. (Drink starting 2037).Burghound | 91-94 BH
(Domaine du Clos Frantin (Nuits St. Georges) - Domaines Albert Bichot Chambertin Grand Cru Red) Here too there is enough wood to mention though not enough to be especially intrusive on the equally good and restrained nose that grudgingly offers up notes of red and dark cherry, sauvage, cool earth and a whiff of game. There is excellent intensity to the dense, powerful and muscular large-scaled flavors that exude an abundance of minerality on the austere, backward and sneaky long finish. This too needs to develop better depth, but the apogee of this wine is so far into the future that more is all but guaranteed to emerge with time. (Drink starting 2039).Burghound | 91-94 BHFrom 0.17 hectares of vine worked by horse and including a large proportion of whole bunch, the 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru has a fragrant bouquet of pure dark cherry, boysenberry, crushed stone and pressed violet aromas. It reminds me of a Clos de la Roche in some ways. The palate is well balanced with fine and quite sturdy tannins. It does not possess the sophistication of the preceding Grands-Echézeaux, but there is good energy on the finish. Very fine. Vinous Media | 91-93 VM
The 2019 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from Bichot’s 0.25 hectares of vines in two parcels close to Drouhin and DRC. It usually yields a maximum of four barrels. This has a perfumed bouquet of expressive red currant, wild strawberry and blood orange aromas that display a little more intensity than the Echézeaux. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins. Sophisticated and precise, this is an elegant Grands-Echézeaux with impressive tension and harmony toward the finish, which fans out beautifully. A wonderful wine. Vinous Media | 94-96 VM(Domaine du Clos Frantin (Nuits St. Georges) - Domaines Albert Bichot Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru Red) This is restrained to the point of being almost mute and the nose requires aggressive swirling to gradually reveal attractively layered aromas of mostly red currant along with an impressive array of floral, spice and tea nuances. There is excellent volume and power to the big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors that possess a beguiling inner mouth perfume before culminating in a very backward, serious and built-to-age finale. This bad boy of a GE is packed with potential but be prepared to buy it and forget it deep in the back of your cellar. (Drink starting 2039).Burghound | 92-95 BH
The 2019 Corton Clos des Maréchaudes Grand Cru, a monopole for Bichot, is matured with around 40% new oak. It has a higher-toned bouquet than the Aloxe-Corton Clos des Marechales, delivering scents of kirsch, crushed strawberry and pressed rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, and nicely focused, displaying well-integrated oak on the black-pepper-tinged finish. Excellent. Vinous Media | 92-94 VM(Domaine du Pavillon (Pommard) - Domaines Albert Bichot Corton-Clos des Maréchaudes Grand Cru Red) This is compositionally similar to the 1er but notably more restrained. The powerful and muscular bigger-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate density and ample minerality on the more persistent finish. This could use more depth but it’s clear there is a bit more overall potential here compared to the 1er. (Drink starting 2034)Burghound | 93 BHThis 0.54ha in the grand cru portion of the vineyard has yielded a wine of greater concentration than from the top of the terrace, where there is a bit more clay. There is an appreciable increase in quality - more density, more structure, more length and more depth to the fruit character. Impressive. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039.Decanter | 92 DEC
