The wine trading house "Albert Bichot" was founded in Meursault in 1831 by Bernard Bichot (1750-1850). His son Hyppolyte Bichot (1831-1908) donated the Volnay Cuvée Blondeau vineyard to the Hospices de Beaune, whose wines are still auctioned today. In the third generation, Albert Bichot I. (1870-1952) increased the estate by acquiring several small merchant houses. He moved the cellars and the company headquarters from Meursault to Beaune. The company subsequently developed into the largest exporter of Burgundy wines. Today it is run by the fifth generation, Albéric Bichot (born 1964).
