    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Etienne Sauzet, Puligny Montrachet, 2018

    Refreshing citrus fruit mixed with Mirabelle and mandarin notes. Open and accessible, silky and sensual rather than overtly buttery. Appealingly generous, fruity and fresh. A blend of seven parcels vinified separately then aged in 10% new oak, more than a third comes from Les Meix, one of the top lieu-dit, in Puligny.

    13%

    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.
