Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

Pale greenish-yellow. Delicate, pure aromas of lemon and minerals. Brisk and backward, with lovely acidity enlivening the dusty, tactile citrus and mineral flavors. This really saturates the palate. Finishes with lovely tension and finesse, not to mention impressive length. The crop level here, according to Gerard Boudot, was just 27 hectoliters per hectare. He added that 2010 is one of his favorite vintages in a long time, thanks in large part to the sharply reduced yields.

About This Producer


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.
