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.
The Sauzet estate owns 1.4ha at the heart of the Perrières vineyard, on the Meursault side, with a great aspect and thinner calcareous soil structure, giving long lived wines with great finesse. A stunning wine – rich, powerful yet also finely poised with classic Puligny character. The palate is ich and powerful, laden with tropical fruits and citrus freshness, and there is an impressive tension and salinity that holds this wine together perfectly. A very stylish wine!
