    ($66) Exotic aromas of peach and charred oak. Fat, sweet, ripe and quite dry, with a flavor of pineapple. Low in acid but not heavy; in fact, this is not at all flat. The crop level here was just 15 hectoliters per hectare, due mostly to the early April frost, according to Boudot. In fact, nearly 90% of this wine was second-generation fruit.

    Slightly astringent nose of respectable, please-all Puligny, though without great excitement. Slight foot-dragging. Okay fruit-acid balance.

    Fresher and with less obvious wood influence that better displays pretty white flower and ripe green apple and pear notes that introduce nicely detailed, round and slightly sweet flavors that offer good punch and persistence if not great elegance.

    I like this wine very much even though the RP rating is 87. Fresh and crisp with distinct.

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.
