    Pale yellow. Subtle, fresh aromas of peach, stone and white truffle. Spicy and saline in the mouth, with lovely penetration and grip to the peach and citrus flavors. Still a bit youthfully spiky. Finishes dry, subtle and persistent, with very good lemony cut. Not at all a fat style.

    The 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Garenne flows across the palate with creamy, generous fruit. The Garenne is at first quite overt, yet also restrained in its medium-bodied personality. Hints of flowers, vanillin and spices mark a finish that turns increasingly ethereal and elusive as reductive notes become more apparent. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.

    The relatively strong mineral reduction does an excellent imitation of a classic Chablis though there are background notes of white orchard fruit and no salt water nuances. There is excellent detail and richness to the precise and vibrant flavors that possess impeccably good balance on the bone dry finish where a saline note arises that is again reminiscent of a fine Chablis. There is a good reason that Garenne is known as the Chablis of Puligny and 2010 demonstrates it 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.
