Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, June 2019,
    Score: 91-93

    This is the first wine to display any appreciable wood influence and even here it is subtle as it easily allows the cool citrus, lavender and honeysuckle scents to shine. The super-sleek, intense and sophisticated medium-bodied flavors brim with minerality on the wonderfully long finish. This packs good punch yet the palate impression is almost delicate. I would add that this too needs to add more depth but the track record of this wine doing so is well established.

  • ST

    Stephen Tanzer, September 2018,
    Score: 91-93

    Explosive nose combines apple, mint, white flowers, violet and mint, lifted by a calcaire quality. Boasts excellent density without weight, with its very ripe yellow peach flavor conveying a rather southern impression. One senses a bit of warmth here, which is likely due to the site's protection from wind. Finishes chewy, firm and dry, with a touch of underripe pineapple and excellent grip and length.

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

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.
