Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2015

    Sitting just beside the woods at the top of the hill of Puligny, Garenne is a slightly cooler and later-ripening site allowing it to produce a very textured wine such as this 2014. With citrus and mango fruits and a twist of hazelnut, it has superb vibrancy.

    The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru la Garenne was missing a bit of substance on the nose when I tasted it at the domaine, though with modest encouragement it opens up to deliver hints of citrus fruit. This just did not quite express the terroir as other of Sauzet's premier crus. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, the oak just rounding this out rather, hints of toffee apple and peach surfacing towards the poised finish. It actually finished better than it begins, so let's see what it can do once in bottle. Drink 2016-2028

    Score: 90-92

    (25+ year old vines aged in 25% new wood). A cool and pure nose displays notes of mineral reduction, green fruit and various citrus elements. There is terrific intensity to the much more mineral-inflected and slightly bigger medium weight flavors that possess very fine depth on the beautifully well-delineated finish that possesses Chablis-like iodine nuances. Drink 2021+

    Score: 18

    26-28 year old vines. In the smaller parcel nearer Hameau de Blagny the soil is richer but most of this is from the far side and is poor and stony. High toned, upright with white flowers on the nose. It is lifted and airy. Light and mineral twirl on the strike. It shimmers. It is delicate, but intense. Salty finish. I do like this.

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.
