    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Etienne Sauzet, Puligny Montrachet, Les Folatières, 1er Cru, 2013

    Very Puligny, textbook stuff; mineral and stony. Intense, nicely weighted and focused. Ripe but very fine, crystal clear fruit flavours of citrus. Sophisticated, taut but with ample supporting richness. Superb. A great Puligny vineyard of poor stony soils that makes for wine of slight shape situated 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. Half of the vines comes from the 1er Cru part of the En la Richarde lieu-dit, next door to Leroy's En La Richarde parcel.

    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.
