2011 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières Domaine Bzikot

Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatiéres 2011 Domaine Bzikot

One of the most recognisable vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet and rightly so, since it's one of the largest in the appellation. There are quite a far number of producers here so selecting the right one for your palate can be tricky and in my opinion, comes with a lot of tasting and drinking. For a brief introduction to this area where one of the most expensive white wines in the world is made, click here.

Anyway, this particular Les Folatiéres by Domaine Bzikot carried a prominent oak profile on the nose - think freshly whipped cream infused with vanilla beans and a generous sprinkling of lemon zest. Heck, there was even toasted coriander seeds aroma in there somewhere. Vibrant and zippy on the palate with a slight bitterness towards the end. Finish a tad short (to my liking) but perhaps I may have served this too cold to begin with. Not quite satisfying at its current state but only time will tell if this will evolve into a real beauty without losing any of its nervosity.
