Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The Sauzet parcel of Le Montrachet sits within the commune of Chassagne Montrachet rather than Puligny. This is a sensational, flamboyant wine. Scented with white peaches and Guernsey cream, it is rich and full, layered with flavours of freshly buttered toast. The pure, precise finish adds nuance to this impeccable wine.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru, from purchased grapes originating from the Chassagne side, has a straightforward, well-defined bouquet that, to be honest, does not quite match up to the Chevalier or Bâtard-Montrachet. The palate is very well balanced and intense, with a slightly honeyed texture. There is a touch of ginger toward the finish of orange zest, tangerine and citrus peel, fanning out as a Montrachet ought to. But my money is still on the Bâtard-Montrachet representing Sauzet’s best Grand Cru. 2024 - 2050

    Like the BBM, this is aromatically quite restrained but elegant with its cool notes of various white orchard fruit, anise, lemon, tangerine and pretty floral wisps. The exceptionally, powerful and muscular broad-shouldered flavors also brim with sappy dry extract while exuding a subtle minerality on the relatively refined, compact and beautifully well-balanced finale. This is very backwards and particularly so for the vintage so extended patience will be necessary, but this beauty should be well-worth the wait. Drink 2033+ Don't miss!

    4 barrels. They supply their own barrels. Not racked yet. A tiny bit more colour, a little touch of coconut from the wood. Excellent density on the palate, seamless, thoroughly Montrachet worthy. Lingers deliciously on the palate, picked at a very good ripeness and with an excellent balance between depth and elegance.

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.
