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 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.

BurghoundA notably more elegant and markedly floral nose offers up notes of pear, citrus, apple and soft spice wisps. There is better detail and verve as well to the less imposingly scaled if finer middle weight flavors that deliver slightly more depth and length as well. This is really quite a good Puligny villages and worth checking out and in particular because it should drink well early on yet repay several years of aging too.
