Now the name Bzikot might not scream French to you, and you would be correct. The Bzikot family escaped Poland and arrived in Burgundy at the beginning of WW2 with literally only the clothes they had on their backs, and over the years began to acquire parcels of vineyards. Over the years they began to acquire a few holdings of vines and sold their fruit to other wineries, it wasn’t until Sylvain took over that the domaine began making and bottling their own wines. While the Bzikot family might not be from Burgundy, Sylvain surely makes wines that are have a Burgundian soul. This Bourgogne rouge is ripe with punches of bright red fruit, dried herbs, earthy mushrooms and a whisper of spice. Lean in the mouth with tons of lift and energy and a scrape of firm acidity. Serve with oozy cheeses, baked salmon, pork and dark meat fowl.
