Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Etienne Sauzet, Puligny Montrachet, Les Folatières, 1er Cru, 2016

Tight-wound and concentrated, this does need time and patience. Distinctly introverted at first, but under the surface there is a deep, strong minerality alongside intense stone fruit and citrus peel notes. The vines average 50 years-old. Half of the vines comes from the 1er Cru part of the En la Richarde lieu-dit, next door to d’Auvenay’s En La Richarde parcel.

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.
