Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Etienne Sauzet, Puligny Montrachet, Champ Canet, 1er Cru, 2015

Compact and deep, there is clearly great power and concentration here with a complex earthy side overlaid by silky ripe yellow, honeyed fruits. Multi-layered and brooding, this requires aeration to reveal itself fully. A great Puligny vineyard situated, mid-slope, above Combettes and next door to Meursault Perrières, planted on a well-balanced mix of clay and limestone soils. The vines average 50 years old.

Etienne Sauzet

Etienne Sauzet’s son-in-law, Gérard Boudot, makes the wine at this benchmark Burgundian Domaine and has been more recently assisted by talented winemaker Benoit Riffault, Gerard's son-in-law. A tasting with Gérard and Benoit is not just enjoyable but highly educational – each session is a virtual masterclass in terroir. Indeed, their knowledge of Puligny’s different vineyards is second to none. They resist the temptation to interfere with the wines too much after fermentation, and employs on average 30% new oak every year. The Grand Crus are, of course, impressive; even right down to Villages and Bourgogne level the wines display the finesse and grace of truly great Puligny.
