    ($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.

    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.

  • 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.
