The white wines of Puligny-Montrachet are some of the most famous and most widely acclaimed in the world. This is 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 finest premier cru 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 terroir in his wines. Boudot, who married the granddaughter of the late Etienne Sauzet, runs the domaine and has modernized and improved the vinification, making Sauzet wines 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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières, which comes from the lieu-dit "en Richard" (though never stated on the label), offers appealing aromas of green apple, slate and a touch of blackberry leaf, gaining intensity with each swirl of the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity. It has a sense of harmony and composure perhaps missing in the La Perriere, with impressive mineralité and tension on the finish. This comes recommended.

BurghoundWood and reduction render the aromas tough to assess. Otherwise there is excellent richness to the dense, sappy and almost oily flavors that despite the high ripeness, weight and volume manages to retain a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering and minerally finish. Good stuff that is a bit more accessible and as such should drink well early on. 90-93
