  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    This is the final vintage in which a parcel of 70 year old vines will make an appearance, having been uprooted in 2017. A powerfully structured and intense wine, with hints of digestive biscuit and hazelnuts. Extremely tightly knit, it will require a year or two in bottle before entering its prime.

  • Burghound, June 2018, Score: 93

    Restrained and cool aromas reflect notes of matchstick, citrus and a wide range of white-fleshed fruit. The succulent and very round flavors possess excellent mid-palate density while delivering excellent length on the sappy and refreshing finish. This mildly austere effort is sufficiently rich to allow for early accessibility yet the underlying structure is clearly present to allow for up to a decade of improvement. This is quality juice. Sweet spot Outstanding. Drink: 2024+

  • Decanter, January 2018, Score: 92

    Sauzet's old vines in Referts have turned in a compelling performance in 2016, in the form of one of the more tight-knit, reserved wines in the cellar. Aromas of white peach, apple and toasted wheat precede a full-bodied, chalky and somewhat four-square wine with good concentration and a serious, grippy finish. Drinking Window 2019 - 2030

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16++

    Light nose. Sleek and neat – bit of a civil servant of a wine; does not set the heart racing. Bit stodgy and chewy on the end.

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.
