Description

Two bottles of this premier cru white burgundy from the 2002 vintage of a notable domaine. The wine is hard to find now. I’m reasonably sure these are the last I have of this vintage.

Sylvain Bzikot’s grandfather was a Polish emigré who arrived in Puligny just before the War with nothing but the clothes he stood up in. From humble beginnings this family domaine acquired some of the most valuable agricultural land in the world, namely Puligny-Montrachet and Puligny 1er Cru. They own a further 9 hectares of “regional appellation”, producing Bourgogne Blanc, Aligoté and the like. The wine is vinified half in stainless steel and half in barrels, of which 90% are new, so that means that roughly 45% of the finished cuvée is vinified and aged in new wood. The stainless steel element of the cuvée brings a freshness and minerality such that the oak is all but unnoticeable. The farming is organic.

A tasting note from Cellartracker:

“5/18/2005 - Winetex wrote: 89 Points.
2002 Burgundies and others at the Rainbow Lodge (Rainbow Lodge, Houston, Texas): This wine was a step-up in quality from the village level Puligny from this producer. Again a more tropical fruit profile (more pineapples) than one normally associates with a Puligny, especially from this vineyard. Very light in color with reasonable structure but also light in weight. Spicy finish with chalky notes.”

The bottles on sale are the ones shown in the photographs and are from a parcel sold to me in 2004 by the late Ian G Howe, the wine merchant and burgundy specialist based in Newark, Notts. They have been kept since purchase in a proper, cold underground cellar. The labels and capsules are decent and the levels are well into the neck as shown.

Payment and Shipping

Bank transfer
PayPal - 5%
By Parcelforce 48, with tracking, in cushioned packaging specifically designed for wine bottles. I usually dispatch the wine on the next business day after payment clears but have found from experience that shipping over a weekend can be problematic so prefer not to do so. No insurance is included in this instance. I do not knowingly sell wine which is not fit for consumption, but this is a private sale with no returns. The shipping cost quoted is for UK only-if you wish to bid from outside the UK, please contact me first for a quote for the cost of shipping. Paypal payments will attract a 5% charge to leave me with the agreed auction price.
