    Aromas of lemon, lime, menthol and minerals. Boasts much more volume than the Bienvenue, with a strong citric character leavened by an impression of sucrosite . Tactile, silky and quite dry, conveying a strong impression of energy and finishing with lovely building length.

    The 2013 Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru is more expressive on the nose than the Bienvenue at the moment, offering cold wet limestone and Granny Smith apple scents. There is certainly good intensity here. The palate is fresh and vibrant with finely tuned acidity, superb mineral concentration with splendid weight and length on the finish. For me, this is a cut above the Bienvenue this year and on par with last year's Batard-Montrachet.

  • 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.
