Winemaker Notes

A candied nose of bubble gum. On the palate, expansive and powerful candied pineapple fruit, fat with searing acidity which brings tears to the eyes.

Critical Acclaim

BH 95
Burghound.com
An extraordinarily complex nose that is even more complex than that of the Chevalier, if perhaps not quite as elegant, displays seriously impressive breadth to the ripe aromas of acacia blossom, anise, clove, white peach and subtle pear aromas. There is exceptionally good richness to the broad shouldered and palate staining flavors that display a bit more minerality than usual before culminating in an overtly powerful, saline and explosively long finish that also really fans out on the finish. This is really a lovely effort that combines the elegance of the Chevalier with the muscularity of the Bâtard. Note that patience will be required however as this is unlikely to drink particularly well young.

Domaine Etienne Sauzet, France
Domaine Etienne Sauzet Winemaker & Owner Gerard Boudout Winery Image

The white wines of Puligny-Montrachet are probably the most famous and most widely acclaimed in the world. This is undoubtedly due to the local microclimates and the clay, siliceous sand and lime contents of the soil. 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. The average age of the vines is 30-35 years.

Gérard Boudot, owner and winemaker of Domaine Sauzet, is seeking "maximum finesse and an individual expression of the climate." 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 1950's. Since 1975, the domaine has been selling the entirety of its production in bottle.

A classic source of exceptional Chardonnay as well as Pinot Noir, the Côte de Beaune makes up the southern half of the Côte d’Or. Its principal wine-producing villages are Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.

The area is named for its own important town of Beaune, which is essentially the center of the Burgundy wine business and where many negociants center their work. Hospices de Beaune, the annual wine auction, is based here as well.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
