Brand Etienne Sauzet

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 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. 

This Bourgogne Blanc comes from three different plots and is matured in four-year-old oak barrels, and had been bottled in August. It has a light and crisp bouquet with green apples, quite malic in style. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, light and agreeable with an easy-drinking finish.

Sauzet's 2018 Bourgogne Blanc has turned out well, revealing aromas of citrus oil, fresh peach and nuts. Medium-bodied, open-knit and succulent, it's a lively but easygoing white that's already drinking well.

The 2018 Bourgogne Blanc comes from four parcels. It has a pretty nose of green apples and hints of lime, all nicely defined. The palate is crisp and taut on the entry with a sharp line of citric acidity and a twist of bitter lemon on the slightly abrupt finish.
