Domaine Etienne Sauzet

Gerard Boudot, son-in-law of the late Etienne Sauzet, is one of the star winemakers of this appellation, now supported by his daughter Emilie and her husband, Benoit Riffault. This small, 8 hectare, bio-dynamically farmed domaine, produces wines of great definition and style and are highly sought after. The wines are left on their lees for 10 months with 20% new oak for Puligny Village. Farmed organically since 2006, the family subsequently moved to bio-dynamic status in 2010. The 1er Crus receive between 20% and 33% new oak. They are some of the most sought after wines in the Puligny appellation and are famed for their elegance and intensity.

Tasting Notes

A soft, buttery bouquet with aromas of wild white flowers. A touch of tropical fruit, apples and citrus fruits, the palate offers a super crispness. Beautifully balanced.
