Puligny Montrachet, Bzikot, Burgundy, France 2015
If upon seeing the name "Bzikot" you thought it didn't sound very French, then you'd be right. Sylvain Bzikot's grandfather arrived in the village of Puligny from Poland just before the start of the war with nothing but the clothes he stood up in. Over the generations the family has acquired four hectares of vineyards within the celebrated Puligny-Montrachet and Puligny 1er Cru appellations. Additionally they own another nine hectares, producing wines under the local Bourgogne Blanc and similar appellations.
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.
