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

Produced from 12 parcels spread around the village but primarily on the Meursault side, totaling 3.5ha planted with vines that average 50 years old, the oldest of which was planted in 1934. The essence of this wine is terroir and fruit with only 15% new oak ageing. The nose is extravagant with an overt and expansive richness. There was no need for any extensive bâttonage such was ripeness this vintage, just pure pineapple and tropical fruits. The finish is delicious, lingering and long.
