Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 95
An admirably cool yet ripe nose offers up notes of white peach, honeysuckle, wet stone and soft spice nuance. The impressively-scaled, rich, full-bodied and palate staining broad-shouldered flavors brim with dry extract that does an excellent job of buffering the very firm acid spine shaping the wonderfully complex and lingering finish. This beauty is perhaps a bit more muscular than usual for a classic Combettes but the natural finesse is still present. Excellent.
Barrel Sample: 92-95
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Unwinding in the glass with aromas of green pear, peach, orange oil, white flowers and nutmeg, the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes is full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a rich core of concentrated fruit, lively acids and muscular structure, concluding with a long, saline finish. This is a powerful but reserved Combettes that's the most introspective of these Sauzet wines.

Domaine Etienne Sauzet Winemaker & Owner Gerard Boudout Winery Image

The history of this domaine dates to the beginning of the 20th century, when Etienne Sauzet inherited and bought several plots of vines in the village of Puligny-Montrachet. The vines passed through the family to Jeanine Boillot, Sauzet’s granddaughter. Jeanine and her husband, Gérard Boudot, managed the domaine, making many modernizations including improved vinification techniques and biodynamic farming. Today the domaine has been passed to their daughter Emilie and her husband, Benoît Riffault, who continue to produce white wines that are among the most sought-after in all of Burgundy. Although the winemaking techniques have been modernized, M. Sauzet’s traditions of estate-bottling and of aging the wines on their lees for 10-12 months to “nourish them” are still respected and result in superbly finished, fruity, and full-bodied wines. After four generations, Sauzet is still synonymous with high-quality, elegant, Burgundian Chardonnay.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

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.
