Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93(+?)

($236) Explosive aromas of roasted nuts and menthol; very Batard. Huge, sweet and opulent; very ripe and expressive but with firm mineral and citric underpinning. Big, rich and built to last, but definitely tastable today. Sound acids extend the youthfully mentholated finish.

Very pale with a mineral-laden nose. Underneath it is big, bold and fat. Amorphous at the moment but all the ingredients are there. Very slightly hot and alcoholic with some astringency still, but the balance of elements is ultimately convincing for the long term. Another very impressive bottling from this increasingly important producer.

Mature, round, complex - no premox luckily since I thought we were rolling the dice on this one. Has many years left

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.
