- Chablis, Burgundy
Much of the lean and elegant taste of Chardonnay from Chablis is attributed to the qualities of the soil, climate, and traditions of the region.
Enjoy its freshness as an aperitif or, with a meal, pair it with seafood, fish or poultry in order to appreciate it's richness.
The best food pairings take advantage of the wine’s natural acidity to act as a palate cleanser and works well with delicately creamy sauces. Due to the lighter, more delicate taste profile of this Chardonnay, you’ll want to stick to lighter meats and fishes as your base ingredient including chicken, quail, trout, bass, halibut, cod, clams or scallops. The acidity and salinity in Chablis also means it will do well alongside raw fish and sushis.
Since 1350, the Bichot family has made Burgundy its home. Their emblem is a deer and the family only became attached to vines and wines during the 19th century. In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a merchant house bearing his name in Monthélie, a couple of kilometres south of Beaune. At the end of the 19th century, his grand-son Albert Bichot brought a new impulsion definitively installed its headquarters in Beaune. The family heritage has been perpetuated from father to son since then. .
