Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2019

    This is just a sensational wine. The flavours flow through freshly baked croissant, Jersey cream, fudge and tropical fruits. It is gloriously open, palate-coating with a lovely balance between generosity, and richness and subtlety. This is a wine for savouring and has a very long life ahead of it.

    Very different from Sauzet's Chevalier - even though the two vineyards are close to one another - this is richer and more concentrated, a broadsword rather than a rapier. Leesy and plush, it has stylishly integrated 100% new wood, a dollop of cream and a nutty, balanced finish. Drink 2020 - 2027

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

Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous white Burgundy Grand Cru coming from a single 8 hectare vineyard which overlaps into the communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Even as far back as the 18th century the wines of Le Montrachet had to be reserved a year in advance - a distant precursor to the en primeur system. The south east facing vineyards give the vines maximum exposure to the sun which combined with the limestone soil produces epic results.
