  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($240) Complex, pure aromas of pear and white peach, with a suggestion of pineapple. Dense and powerful yet rather suave in the mouth, with pineapple and floral flavors complicated by hints of exotic fruits and licorice. Structured, serious and very long on the aftertaste. A very good Batard.

    Quite a price for something that tastes so neutral at the moment. Weight? Yes. Subtlety, or even power? I think not. (cask sample)

    The boldly aromatic 2001 Batard-Montrachet exhibits gingerbread, clove, and pear scents. It broadens on the palate, displaying lively lemons and minerals. Light to medium-bodied, it is satin-textured, fresh, concentrated, and focused.

    Explosive and astonishingly broad in its aromatic profile with spice, ripe peach and apricot aromas and plenty of precision followed by rich, muscular, extremely powerful flavors of exceptional length and palate staining intensity. A first rate effort that is only a notch behind the incredible 2000. Outside of the Montrachet, the best wine here today.

  • 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.
