Musky, truffley aromas of pear blossom, herbs and menthol. Much fuller and more powerful than the Chevalier-Montrachet but less complex and less precise today. A typically dense, broad-shouldered Batard that very young but appears to have the balance for longer-term greatness.

The nose is a incredible with light scents of tree fruits and wet rocks. It is hard to describe the flavors except to say that they are exceptionally elegant and complex. Pure, classy and infused with a delightful minerality. The finish was at least 45 seconds to a minute and was the most delightful I have ever experienced in a white wine. Never miss a chance to drink this wine.

About This Producer


The domaine of Etienne Sauzet is made up of 26 acres, much of it in the heart of the premier crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. Gerard Boudot, owner and winemaker of Domaine Sauzet, is seeking 'maximum finesse and an individual expression of the climat.' M. Boudot, who married the granddaughter of the late Etienne Sauzet, runs the domaine and has modernized and improved the vinification, making the wines of this domaine among the most sought-after white wines of Burgundy.

The estate has been bottling 100% of its production since the early 1950s. Boudot ferments and ages 100% of the premiers crus and grand crus in small oak, one-third new. The average age of the vines is 30-35 years. These are textbook white burgundies, brimming with flavor, yet elegant and well-balanced.
