Tasting Notes

Burghound, May 2008, Score: 94

A now fully mature nose of lemon-lime and white flower aromas lead to rich and muscular flavors that possess excellent depth and punch. For all its size and power, it remains symmetrical and solidly balanced by the ripe supporting acidity and the length is absolutely show stopping. This is a reference standard Bâtard that is drinking perfectly and happily, I have had no run-ins with premature oxidation with this particular '99 Sauzet though I have with some of the other wines in the range. For my taste, this has arrived at its full maturity though it should be capable of holding here for at least another decade.

Producer

Domaine Etienne Sauzet

Etienne Sauzet is one of the most famous domaines in Puligny Montrachet along with Domaine Leflaive and Louis Carillon. Created by Etienne from family vines, over time he purchased additional vineyards until it grew to 12 hectares in 1950. When Etienne passed away in 1975, his daughter Jeanine and her husband, Gerard Boudot, took over the domaine. Due to family inheritance, the domaine decreased to 7 hectares which only made the wine even more rare! Today, they are helped by their dynamic daughter, Emilie, and her husband, Benoît Riffault.

Region

Bâtard-Montrachet, White Burgundy

Bâtard-Montrachet is a great white Grand Cru in Burgundy's Côte D'or. Its vineyards are located onthe slope beneath Le Montrachet, in the Côte de Beaune. Bâtard-Montrachet's soils are heavier than those surrounding it, made up of brown limestone and gravel, which pave the way for rich, nutty, honeyed and heady wines with good structure. They are not as elegant as those from Chevalier-Montrachet and are broader and weightier than wines from Montrachet.
