Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2012

    A wine which balances volume of fruit with freshness. The strong lemon zest flavours are balanced by gentle toffee flavours. Whilst not big and powerful it has great purity and definition.

    Score: 90-93

    Here too there is a discreet touch of wood framing the slightly more elegant aromas of citrus, pear, floral elements and wet stone. There is more evident minerality to the attractively pure and ultra-fine middle weight flavors that exhibit a distinct salinity on the balanced, complex and harmonious finish. This is really lovely and should amply reward mid-term cellaring. Outstanding. Drink 2018+

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, January 2013,
    Score: 17.5

    Lots of sulphidic scent, almost acrid but just stays within reason. Plenty of fruit, lots of acid. Bold, impressive. (RH) 13.5% Drink 2013-2023

Producer

Domaine Etienne Sauzet

Etienne Sauzet is one of the great estates of Puligny Montrachet, taking its name from current incumbent Emilie Riffault's great grandfather who founded this domaine in the early 1900s. It boasts 15 hecatres of vineyards, comprising four white grands crus in Puligny and Chassagne and nine premiers crus. Today, under Emilie and husband Benoit's direction, their owned vineyards are fully biodynamic and they are one of the flag bearers for the appellation of Puligny.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet

Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
