    (this is 100% from Puligny-Montrachet side as of 2011, as Boudot lost his Chassagne-Montrachet fruit): Pale, bright yellow. Musky, ripe but reticent nose hints at stone fruits and crushed stone. In a rather muscular, powerful style, with terrific punch and saline minerality to its peach and crushed stone flavors. Finishes very long, dry and savory. This is 13.2% alcohol without chaptalization: Boudot appears to have done a very good job of timing the harvest here.

  • 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.
