Tasting note

2019 Albert Bichot Fixin

My wife and I arrived in Beaune for our Burgundy trip today. As the fine restaurant we originally planned to have dinner at didn’t allow dogs inside, we wandered about in the old town and spontaneously went to a bistro for down to earth Burgundian food. There, I also ordered this modest 2019 Albert Bichot Fixin.

Having originally been founded in Monthélie in 1813, Maison Albert Bichot is based in Beaune today and owns six estates across Burgundy. The 2019 Albert Bichot Fixin is a cuvée from several vineyards in Fixin in the Côte de Nuits, just north of the better-known Gevrey-Chambertin.

Dark, transparent purple colour in the glass. Sweet, red fruits on the nose reminiscent of cherry yogurt. In the mouth, the fruitiness is balanced off with a good acidity and well-integrated tannins. Good length, too.

Drink through 2026.
