Domaine Etienne Sauzet, located in the village of Puligny-Montrachet, is arguably one of Puligny's finest domaines. The domaine was established in the 1920s and at its height, had 12 hectares of vines. Etienne's daughter inherited the vineyards and left them to her three children. As a result the vineyard holdings total less than nine hectares. Today, the next generation has taken over with Emilie, Jeanine’s daughter, running the domaine with her winemaker husband Benoît Riffault. Etienne Sauzet purchases grapes from family and trusted growers. They have been practicing biodynamic viticulture for the last seven years. The portion of new oak in the cellar has also been reduced in recent years to allow the elegance of the fruit to shine through.
This is an incredibly pure and elegant Puligny, with elegant aromas of butter and stone fruits. It is very fresh on the palate with a crisp acidity but gently balanced by a slightly 'creamy' texture.
