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

Taut and minerally but also showing a lovely opulence with white stone and nutty characters,hints of honey and integrated oak. This is another very polished and razor sharp wine with a lovely lingering finish - superb!

Food Matches

Try this wine with tuna steak with lime and coriander.
