Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Etienne Sauzet, Puligny Montrachet, Les Perrières, 1er Cru, 2018

A really intense salinity here. Lots of dry extract giving this great zip and tang. Long, straight mineral characteristics shimmering brilliantly through the honeyed fruit notes. Finer soils here than Garenne and more limestone giving a slighter finer wine. A well-drained vineyard situated next to Referts, but very different in style, with a similar clay content but more compact and scattered with small rocky stones. The resulting wines are invariably more slender and mineral than Referts.

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.
