Always reliable, and well-priced, with a number of standout cuvees, Domaines Bichot continues its good run of form with 2018 vintage. The Premier and Grand Crus from Clos Frantin, the flagship domaine, and increasingly the maison itself, continue to produce benchmark wines which offer real value and character, whist Domaine Pavillon’s Beaune Clos des Mouches’, is the white Burgundy of choice for the cognoscenti. As Neal Martin comments, Bichot can make “really quite delicious, complex wines that often surprise people in blind tastings when not swayed by the label.” Once again our selections, from AOC Bourgogne to Richebourg, all show the precision, typicity and expressive, generous fruit expected of their level and mean there is something from the portfolio to suit all tastes and budgets. Head winemaker Alain Serveau is pleased that in 2018 the wines achieved sufficient concentration and structure whilst maintaining freshness and supple fruit.

A hidden gem, overlooking Pommard, the vineyard is another of Beaune’s Grand Cru contenders and certainly remains under-priced for the quality of wines it produces. 35% new oak contributes to the honeysuckle richness but does not impact on the lovely purity, and length of the fruit. The depth really impresses and shows it’s not just Drouhin who can make great wines on this site. Ripe white stone fruit, waxed pears, mandarin notes and whiff of camomile and white pepper assail the nose. Palate has a good stoniness allied with spicy, sweet ripe orchard fruits, and a marzipan note on the vibrant finish. Another cracker from Pavillon. Tom, Wine Guru

The Clos des Mouches made by Joseph Drouhin may be more famous, but Bichot's parcel of 0.7ha, situated in the highest part of the Premier Cru, is pretty impressive in its own right. Bright, focused and chiselled, it's the sort of white that wouldn't look out of place in Puligny-Montrachet, combining citrus, wet stone and aniseed flavours. 94/100, Tim Atkin
