Domaine Bzikot 

"Les Folatieres"
Puligny-Montrachet
Premier Cru
2006
Cote de Beaune, France


100% Chardonnay

 

If upon seeing the name "Bzikot" you thought it didn't sound very French, then you'd be right.
Sylvain's grandfather arrived in the village of Puligny from Poland just before the start of the first great war with nothing but the clothes he stood up in.
There are only sixteen Grand Cru in the appellation and they each have a deserved reputation for consistently excellent wines that age exceptionally well.
This wine has reached its maturity and will hold its quality level for 2-4 years.


For those of you who loved some of the wines that Dave was pouring last Friday, this is another hidden gem that you might only find on the wine lists of the best restaurants in the Metro area!! 
I've sampled this one myself and I was impressed with the depth and intensity of flavors as well as the extraordinary balance of freuit and acidity. This is definitely a wine that you'll need for holiday celebrations or gift giving!! -

92 Points! - Cellar Tracker 

"The bouquet brings together hawthorn blossoms, ripe grapes, marzipan, hazelnut, amber, lemon-grass and apple. Milky (butter, hot croissant) and mineral aromas (flint) are present as is honey. Body and bouquet blend into a subtle harmony. This wine combines grace with a well defined character and a remarkable concentration."

"The nose opens up nicely with air, limestone, apple, chalk, a full-bodied, complex wine, the palate is round and shows good richness and acidity, a wave of apple and ripe green melon flavors, coupled with notes of butter and nut elements, the finish is long and mouthwatering." - Christian Schiller

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

The wine has richness and density with a creamy, rich, buttery and nutty nose. It is also creamy on the palate with flavours of vanilla, but also with a good mineral spine and citrus freshness.

 

A bit about Sylvain Bzikot and the Puligny Appellation......
An amazing story not typical of Burgundy, the Bzikot family are Polish emigrés who arrived in Puligny just before the first great war with nothing but the clothes he stood 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 in Puligny-Montrachet.
With minimal intervention in the vineyards and cellar, Sylvain Bzikot produces wines that are at one ripe and rich, yet elegant and complex.
Affable and fun-loving, he is one of the underground wine making stars of the region.

Puligny-Montrachet and its Crus are concentrated and well-bred. Their balance, aromatic complexity, and purified style demand delicate but rich food. They are equally at home with poultry in sauce or veal fried with mushrooms. Their great distinction elicits a grateful response from foie gras, lobster, crawfish, and grilled or fried sea-fish. On the cheese-board, its natural allies are goat cheeses, Reblochon, or soft-centred cheeses like Brie de Meaux.
