Bichot makes a lot of wine and most of it is reasonably priced and of good quality.  This is no exception.  Green gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with lemons, slight chalk/minerals, and a slight apple quality.  Light bodied.  On the palate, this drinks easy.  Lemon candy notes with some fresh lemon.  Some acidity.  A slight bitter note on the finish.  This needs to be consumed now.  It works well on its own but better with lighter foods.  It went well with a cheese pizza.

Quite the treat!  Served to me by friends!  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose takes some time to open, and then orange/tangerine, peach, slight almond flour and a bit of a floral note.  Medium bodied with a slightly oily (in a good way) texture.  On the palate, this takes some time to open and then shows peach, tangerine, and stony minerality.  Delicious.  Long finish.  This is young and will undoubtedly improve over the next seven to ten years.  It should drink well for another ten to twelve after that.  That said, it offers up so much energy and intensity now, it would be

At or near peak and drinking well.  Garnet in color, clear and bright.  The nose is great with cherries, slight funk. slight black cherries and spice.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, bold cherry and some black cherry fruit.  Slight forest floor and mushroom underneath.  Nice energy and balance.  Good finish.  This should drink well for another ten to twelve years.  Great on its own, this would work well with salmon or a mushroom dish.
