2014 Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet


Domaine Etienne Sauzet, established in the 1920s and today one of the most important producers of white wine in all Burgundy

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.

Some 9.24 hectares are currently owned, including tiny plots of Batard-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet, along with an impressive array of six premiers crus in Puligny-Montrachet.  A tiny (half hectare) plot is also owned in Chassagne-Montrachet, Les Encegnieres, directly underneath  vines Sauzet utilises in Batard-Montrachet.

Here the expressive nose is both more elegant and markedly more floral in character where added breadth is present in the form of apple, pear and citrus peel. There is once again excellent volume and richness to the caressing and super-refreshing medium weight flavors that deliver even better depth and length on the more refined finish. This is also really very good for its level and recommended.

89 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet Villages, which comes from the same 12 parcels from north to south of the appellation as in previous years, has a lively bouquet that has more personality than the Chassagne Enceignières – light oyster shell scents coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with vibrant acidity, crisp and taut with a lively, green apple and fresh nectarine finish. Nice length here and nicely composed, this would be my preference over the Chassagne Villages this year.
