    ($273; at 70 years of age, these vines are the oldest of the domain) Pale lemon-yellow color. Aromas of citrus peel, crushed stone, white flowers and menthol, plus a suggestion of licorice. Tight and juicy, with terrific penetration to its intense lemon and mineral flavors. This extremely young wine really showcases the intensity of millerande grapes. The firm acidity of 2007 goes great with wines from deeper soil, notes Boudot.

    A hint of exotic fruit adds nuance to the primary aromas of honeysuckle, fresh citrus and pain grill‚ that introduce ripe, naturally sweet, rich, full and relatively powerful flavors that are denser and the old vine sap is evident as there is a mouth coating texture to the brilliantly long finish. Terrific and very Bienvenues.

    Boudot's 2007 Bienvenues-Batard Montrachet ' from septuagenarian vines ' reminds me of the ability of this small cru to offer a grander and yet more rarified version on the character of its northern neighbor Les Pucelles. Heady of honeysuckle, iris, anise, heliotrope, rowan, and white peach lead into a silken, lushly-fruited, liquidly floral palate that caresses yet enlivens. Suggestions of ginseng and almond paste add to the complexity of a lingering lift-off of a finish. I was completely carried away by this wine, but only when I returned to it after tasting the great Sauzet Montrachet of this vintage did I become fully aware of the amazing clarity, subtlety, refinement, and buoyancy it delivers. I would like to think this will be worth following for a decade or more, but for heaven's sake ' if you are lucky enough to acquire some bottles ' do not neglect to relish it in its youth as well!

  • 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.
