Description

Two bottles of this white premier cru burgundy, the Folatieres, from the 2001 vintage of a notable domaine.

Sylvain Bzikot’s grandfather was a Polish emigré who arrived in Puligny just before the war. From humble beginnings this family domaine has acquired an impressive 4 hectares of 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. This sounds heavy for a village Puligny, but the stainless steel element of the cuvée brings a freshness and minerality such that the oak is all but unnoticeable. The farming is organic.

This wine is not now commercially obtainable in the UK or indeed anywhere else. The bottles on sale are the ones shown in the photographs and come from a parcel sold to me in November 2004 by the late Ian G Howe, the wine merchant and burgundy specialist who was then 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.
