About

Product Description:

"Crisp and lively, with tons of pure fruit character, as well as tremendous minerality. Situated just on the wrong side of being called Puligny Montrachet, this wine has always tasted more like a Puligny Montrachet than a humble Bourgogne Blanc."

WINERY: "A family-run winery for 3 generations, Sylvain Bzikot has run the winery since 1991. He is also the winemaker at this domaine. The vineyards are located in 7 different appellations and include a total of 14 hectares."

"Sylvain's grandfather was a Polish emigre who arrived in Puligny just before the war with nothing but the clothes he stood in. From those very humble beginnings this family domaine has managed to acquire an impressive 4ha of some of the most valuable agricultural land in the world, namely Puligny-Montrachet and Puligny 1er Cru. They own a further 9ha of regional appellation producing Bourgogne Blanc."

VINEYARDS: "The domaine's vineyards are all located in and around the commune of Puligny-Montrachet. The soils around this region are limestone-clay, with good drainage and mixed in are small stones. The vines are an average of 40 years old. These soils are favorable for the production of white wines." -Importer
