More Vintages and Sizes of Etienne Sauzet - Batard-Montrachet:
Author: Allen Meadows
(from vines in both Puligny and Chassagne that is almost a 50/50 split and aged in 50% new wood) A more open and expressive nose speaks of white flower, white peach and spiced pear before sliding gracefully into delicious, mouth coating and serious big-bodied flavors brimming with dry extract and power on the driving finish. Despite the substantial size and weight, the flavors and finish retain a fine sense of cut while avoiding any sense of heaviness or loss of focus. This is a knockout.

($240) Pale yellow-straw. Musky, deeply pitched nose shows citrus and mineral elements. Enters the mouth sweet, but racy acidity and solid underlying minerality give shape and energy to the stone fruit and spice flavors. There's a bit of meaty reduction here, which I take as a positive sign for the likely evolution of this wine. A serious grand cru that needs some time.
