Albert Bichot has a strong presence in Travel Retail and Duty Free Global will be in charge of developing new markets for the estate wines.
Albert Bichot is a family-owned winery based in Beaune, Burgundy. It was established in 1831 and is now headed up by its sixth 6th generation with Albéric Bichot.
The independent Albert Bichot owns over 100 hectares of vineyards from Chablis down to Moulin a Vent. The company practices sustainable viticulture, and no chemicals are used in the vineyards. Most of the domains are certified organic and the wines are eco-friendly.
Barry Geoghegan, Wine MBA and Founder of Duty Free Global commented, “We are thrilled to be representing Albert Bichot.
“I have always admired and enjoyed their wines and found them to be of such high quality. We visited the team in Beaune and found Albéric Bichot and his team so warm and hospitable whilst sharing their passion and knowledge with us.
“We know from speaking to the operators that Burgundy is in big demand worldwide!”
Albéric Bichot commented: “We are very excited to be working alongside Duty Free Global as we are confident, they understand the Albert Bichot philosophy and will share this spirit with the travel retail industry.”
