Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet La Truffière 2015
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.'
Burghound A notably cool and restrained nose displays notes of matchstick and petrol characters along with green apple, acacia blossom and soft wood nuances. There is once again fine volume to the delicious and caressing flavors that possess an appealing minerality before culminating in an almond-inflected finish that offers very good if not elite depth and persistence. This too should drink well early. 89-92
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Truffières captures the trademark tropical scents of the vintage: fresh pineapple, passion fruit and a hint of white peach, whilst neatly avoiding any sense of blowsiness or overpowering sensations. The palate is harmonious with a smooth texture, notes of toffee apple, lemon curd and walnut segueing into a finish that feels a little richer than the 2014 last year, but thankfully it maintains fine balance. Whilst the Puligny Hameau de Blagny seems a little more effortless, this remains a fine proposition.
