Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    Although Champ Gain is the highest 1er Cru in the village, Sauzet’s parcel is in a spot sheltered by nearby woods, just by 1ers Crus Truffière and Folatières. This added protection leads to a style balancing weighted intensity with razor-like freshness, which is a perfect combination in 2020. Deep straw colour, with aromas of sweet blood orange. This is deeply textured and concentrated, but always bright and alive. Layered and long.

    The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Gain 1er Cru has a complex bouquet with wild peach, Clementine, smoke and a touch of walnut, gaining intensity with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh, good tension here with a precise finish. I find this captures the elegance of the vintage with real panache. Excellent. Drink 2025 - 2048

    A little more on the yellow side, with quite a sunny exotic fruit on the nose. Peach and fresh apricot with summer flowers behind. Altogether more flesh on the palate though nothing too rich, the barrel just a little more present, then a tighter more saline finish.

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.
