  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($215) Ripe, sweet aromas of peach, flowers and nuts. Pure, penetrating and perfumed, with an enticing sugar/acid balance and lovely inner-mouth aromatic character. Not fat but plenty dense. In a rather elegant style, like the '05 version of this wine. Really stains the palate on the aftertaste. Wonderfully balanced wine, and the most forward of the Sauzet grand crus in '04.

  • Burghound | Rating: 93

    Incredibly fresh and vibrant yet discreet with a nose that is brimming with honeysuckle and acacia blossom, all of which introduces racy, even tangy medium full, notably ripe but utterly classy and sophisticated flavors of considerable depth and solid delineation that continue on to a palate staining, wonderfully intense finish. Exceptionally good juice that is delicious yet entirely serious. While not qualitatively better than the Combettes, there is another dimension here that I find most beguiling.

  • 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.
