Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    This grand cru is split across the boundary of Chassagne and Puligny Montrachet. Sauzet’s Bâtard comes from vines planted on the Puligny side of the appellation just below Le Montrachet itself. This was truly sensational on the day of tasting, equalling all the other grand crus in quality. Lovely honeyed aromas, with hints of ripe tropical fruits. It balances breadth with a taut drive. Complete, confident and quite brilliant.

    Score: 94-96

    The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru comes from two parcels. It displays more intensity on the nose compared to the Bienvenue, offering crushed granite/wet limestone aromas, Granny Smith apples and a touch of orange peel. The palate is very saline on the entry, which gets the saliva flowing. This is supremely well focused, taut and linear, with great persistence and precision toward the finish. A superb Bâtard-Montrachet that should age with style. 2023 - 2050

    Score: 92-95

    A slightly riper and not quite as elegant nose combines ever-so-mildly exotic notes of both white and yellow orchard fruit, lychee, a lovely array of floral elements and a hint of citrus. The succulent but racy larger-scaled flavors are even more powerful is not quite as dense before terminating in a strikingly long finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. Excellent. Drink 2030+ Don't miss!

    Score: 93-97

    From 50 year old vines, on average. Clear light lemon with some density and if anything a fruit profile heading more towards the yellow. Good volume here at the front, racy behind, some limestone feel, not as deep as some. Not singing quite so much today but I suspect it is all there.

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.
