Bichot Meursault 2008
In this region that is exclusively devoted to Chardonnay, the grapes for this appellation are grown within a radius of approximately fifteen kilometers around the village of Chablis in France's Yonne department. Hailing from Kimmeridgian calcareous clay soil, our Chablis stands out for its freshness and citrus notes (grapefruit, lime). It is aged on the lees in the centuries-old cellars at Chateau Long-Depaquit for 6 to 8 months to lend fullness and subtles roundness, underscored by great balance. This is in the ideal wine to serve with seafood, crustaceons, and raw fish (such as a duo of raw and cooked salmon with dill).
From !#%0, the Bichot family was established in Burgundy, with a deer as a symbol. is is only in the XIXth century that the family gets into the wine business, when Bernard Bichot founds in 1831 a wine brokerage.
