Thousands of wine searches are made on Star Wine List every month and we have hundreds of the world's best wine lists to search through. We've added up the numbers from 2020: Tiny Burgundy producer Domaine Bizot is the most searched wine.
Domaine Bizot may not be the most famous wine producer in Burgundy but it's clear that the small domain has a strong following among the wine lovers and professionals that use Star Wine List. With only about 3.5 hectares and a production of around 10,000 bottles, it comes out on top of all the wine searches on Star Wine List during 2020.
Award-winning restaurant PM & Vänner in Växjö, Sweden, is one of the venues that list Domaine Bizot’s wines. Wine Director Rubén Sanz Ramiro is not very surprised by the popularity of Bizot on Star Wine List.
”The wines are very good, very pretty, and they are made in very small quantities. It’s also a domaine that you don’t see often. It has a cult following and the prices are rising.”
Burgundy has been on the rise for a number of years, but Domaine Bizot is not yet a household name among guests at PM & Vänner.
”It’s not the most popular of our Burgundies. Out of the top list of the most searched wines, Comte Liger Belair is the most popular producer in Burgundy among our guests and is probably the Domaine in Burgundy we sell the most in the upper tier. It has been remarkable the rise of this Domaine, but we will see how the guests reacts as prices keep increasing considerably,” says Sanz Ramiro.
It is a good idea to use Star Wine List to find Domaine Bizot and others like it. Small cult domaines are usually very hard to find in retail. In fact, there are only 14 Bizot offers in wine shops around the world today according to Wine Searcher.
If you check on Star Wine List - you can find 97 listings of Domaine Bizot in 38 restaurants on several continents.
