    Goedhuis, December 2016

    As benchmark a Bâtard as one could hope to find. This has a hugely complex nose with rich opulent smoky cappuccino aromas. In the mouth it balances tropical fruits with freshly buttered toast leading to a sweet spicy finish. A sublimely hedonistic grand cru.

    Score: 92-94

    The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a more reserved and conservative bouquet compared to the Bienvenue, with dew-speckled Granny Smith apples, grass clipping, wet granite aromas unfolding in the glass but never letting go completely. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, a little more tension and race than the Bienvenue yet displaying that same spicy, but here more saline finish that fans out with confidence. Excellent - this is very elegant. Drink Date 2019 - 2035

    Score: 92-94

    Tasting note: Reduction currently dominates what appears to be notably ripe fruit. By contrast there is a lovely sense of energy to the bigger, richer and more powerful full-bodied flavors that also coat the palate with dry extract on the impressively long and equally complex finish. I mildly prefer the Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet because of its marginally better sense of verve but I underscore that the difference is slight and it's obviously an open question as to how the two wines will compare over time - in sum, both are excellent. Drink 2025+ Score 92-94/100

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

Bâtard-Montrachet

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.
