His family migrated to Burgundy after the war and was able to secure a good amount of land at very good prices. The wines were sold in bulk for many years to producers all over Burgundy . In 1992 Sylvain Bzikot convinced his father to develop their own domaine and keep the best lots for themselves. Today they own some of the most sought after Village wines in Puligny. The Puligny Village bottling for many years was sold to Domaine Dujac for their Puligny Village.
