A wonderfully fresh, clean and harmonius Cote de Beaune white Burgundy.
The grapes for this, his village level wine, are hand harvested and half of it is matured in 1yr old oak barrels to add some richness and density, with the other half matured in stainless steel to preserve the freshness and delicacy of flavour of the fruits. It's full of quite upfront nectarine, peach, honeysuckle and fresh citrus fruit flavours with buttery and hazelnut notes coming through mid-palate.
Sylvain Bzikot Puligny Montrachet is one of the most impressive village Puligny Montrachets we’ve tried. It’s perfect in every way and has a mystical allure and beauty which is hard to resist. Supremely complex with ripe lemons and limes, touches of honey and fresh blossom on the nose followed by a weighty palate. Hints of vanilla, hazelnuts, fresh peach and a citrus finish, balance perfectly with the mouth-watering acidity on the palate. Delicious!
Sylvain Bzikot’s grandfather was a Polish emigrant who arrived in Puligny just before the War with nothing but the clothes he stood up in. From those very humble beginnings this family domaine has managed to acquire an impressive 4 hectares of some of the most valuable agricultural land in the world, namely Puligny-Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru. They own a further 9 hectares of “regional appellation” producing Bourgogne Blanc, Aligoté and Pinot Noir.
