Located on the left bank of the Serein River, just on the outskirts of Chablis, "Les Vaillons" offers a classic example of what the region has to offer.  Nestled on the slopes of the Valvan valley, our plot lies at the heart of this famous Premier Cru vineyard.  The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214.  They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxious.  The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche).

In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthélie.  His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential.  Hi son, Alvert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family bvusiness new momentum in the late 19th centuryand settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912.
