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. The white wines of Puligny-Montrachet are some of 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. Les Combettes is one of 14 premier cru vineyards in Puligny-proper. 

Wine Advocate reports: 'Winemaker Benoît Riffault has quietly steered Etienne Sauzet towards more consistency and pedigree. In Benoît they have a talented, often sanguine vigneron who seems adept at taking things in his stride, taking vintages as they come. And I must admit, upon departing the domaine I reflected upon the wines I had tasted and dwelled upon what an impressive portfolio they have accumulated.'

A wine with a lovely mineral freshness and plentiful citrus aromas. The is very crisp and refreshing. Delightful. One of two wines in the cellar (with the Chevalier) that are from purchased fruit. The total surface represents 1.1ha, located high on the hill. Despite the altitude, the fruit ripened to 13.5% alcohol, and the grapes were lightly pressed and fermented in cask (20% new). Drinking Window 2025 - 2040.

The 2020 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne 1er Cru offers scents of citrus fruit, pressed white flowers and a touch of hazelnut. This opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh with a discrete peppery finish that lingers in the mouth. Impressive energy here. Good potential.

A hint of pain grillé is present on the aromas of green fruit, citrus, petrol and plenty of white floral elements. There is excellent volume and richness to the more concentrated medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a detailed and mineral-driven finale that is quite dry but not really austere. Moderate patience advised. 90-92
