Matunuck Oyster Bar hosted a five-course pairing dinner featuring Maison Albert Bichot wines on January 30. The Bichot family was established in Burgundy, France, in the mid-1300s with a history in the wine industry dating back to the 19th century, when Bernard Bichot founded a wine brokerage in 1831. Albéric Bichot represents the sixth generation to run the family business, with four estates in the heart of four viticultural regions that make up Burgundy: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, and Côte Chalonnaise. Each estate consists of vineyards cultivated with sustainable practices, as well as facilities and teams devoted to making the region’s wines. The dinner showcased Puligny Montrachet 2016, Fixin Rouge 2016 Pinot Noir, Pommard 2015 1er Cru Les Rugiens and Crémant Rosé alongside dishes crafted with local and regional fresh ingredients.
