2015 Albert Bichot Chardonnay Bourgogne Réserve de l’Orangerie

2015 Albert Bichot Chardonnay Bourgogne Réserve de l’Orangerie

Researching this wine proved to be frustrating. This may be a Costco-exclusive wine, although I am only speculating.

Domaine Albert Bichot is a fairly well-known Burgundy producer with widely available wines. Costco has carried the Bichot Domaine Long-Depaquit Chablis previously, and some stores probably still have it in stock.

This wine is 100% Chardonnay made from grapes that come from somewhere in Burgundy. That’s really all I can tell you about the wine that you can’t learn from reading the back label.

I can tell you that I believe it has seen little oak, and that it was probably neutral. I also think that the winemaker blocked malo as there is little to no butter or cream on the palate.

The wine is light and crisp, driven by a backbone of acid and minerality, and reminiscent of a Chablis. The fruit is very subtle; orange blossom and lemon are more pronounced on the nose. You could probably get away with serving this to group of mixed Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc lovers. At $10.99 per bottle, the price is friendly and fair.

Vivino user reviews mention Costco a lot, and are more giving than mine will be. I think the wine is simple, imbalanced, and one-dimensional. I could mindlessly drink this any day, but I would likely move onto something else after the first half-glass.

Considering my love for wine and tendency to give more credit than credit is due, I guess you could say that I’m just not that into it. I give this wine an 87. Rating: 87 Points

This is what I suspect SRH. I also could not find this wine anywhere on the website. As always, thank you for reading and I always enjoy your comments.

Best, Erin

Erin, might this be a bottling JUST for COSTCO? doesn't show it as one of their wines, though sometimes websites are woefully out of date.

Would love to get a bottle of the Kirkland rose. I live in Pittsburgh. Does anyone know how to a bottle?
