En Primeur | Etienne Sauzet

The domaine was founded by Etienne Sauzet in the early 1900s, and since then the vineyard has passed down through the generations. The estate has remained largely intact, apart from one of his grandsons, Jean-Marc Boillot who created his own domaine in 1991 with his part of the inheritance. Today the family interests of 15 hectares are managed by Etienne’s great granddaughter Emilie and her husband Benoît Riffault. Benoît comes from Sancerre and has white winemaking in his blood.

  • Goedhuis, December 2022

    From vineyards just outside the appellational boundaries of Puligny Montrachet but within the commune of the village. Aromas of fresh yeast, pannacotta and tangerine. A bright and fresh style, with a charming ease and soft graceful finish.

  • Neal Martin, January 2023, Score: 86-88

    The 2021 Bourgogne Blanc has a more pithy nose than its peers, with touches of wild peach and candle wax complementing the malic scents. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, hints of Clementine and sour lemon with fine tension on the simple, yet effective finish. Drink 2023-2028.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2023, Score: 86-87

    Made in barrel and foudres with some purchased grapes. Pale to mid lemon. Some tension on the nose, not much flesh. A little greengage with a slight bitterness, medium length, fills out better at the back. Drink from 2024-2026.
