Fresh, crisp and clean, with aromas of citrus and white flowers. Great minerality on the palate along with balanced acidity mark this wine out as an exceptional Bourgogne Blanc.
Sylvain Bzikot makes wines with real personality. The 13.2 hectare estate was originally created by his grandparents at the beginning of the 1940s. They arrived (as Polish immigrants) in Meursault to work in the vineyards as their friends and relations did before them. After a few years working in the fields, they began as “metayer fermier” and subsequently bought a few tiny parcels of land which they planted progressively. At the time farming was polycultural; not only vines but also cereal and cattle. Now that his parents have retired Sylvain is totally in charge of vineyard operations and also has been developing estate bottling (started twenty years ago). All the grapes for the village wines are handpicked, then a pneumatic press is used to aid soft extraction and the wines are clarified in thermoregulated tanks. After eight to ten months, once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are finished, the wines are assembled in stainless steel for several months, fined, very slightly filtered and bottled. Terrific purity expressed here from the outset.
