Goedhuis, January 2015
A beautifully harmonious Bâtard, stunning sensations of fresh honey and clotted cream. A wine of texture and substance and its natural power and weight of fruit is beautifully balanced by a feeling of grace and subtly crisp acidity.
Sarah Marsh, November 2014,
Just above Bienvenue with some on the Chassagne side. Powerful ripe, strong aroma. Ripe citrus generous strike. A full and broad palate. Plenty of richness and extract. A very large wine with a lot of concentration and power. A good deal of muscle here and a powerful long finish with big savoury minerality at the end. Vigour and power combine. An excellent long finish. A lot of presence. Score 19.25
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.
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.
