A leading light of Puligny-Montrachet, Sauzet crafted among the region’s very finest wines. Jasper Morris MW in his book, Inside Burgundy, calls the domaine one of the top two or three. Today it is owned by three grandchildren. As chiseled as they are flamboyant and, at the upper echelon, lavishly oaked, the Bourgogne Blanc is declassified Puligny fruit, serving as a looking glass into Puligny’s wonderland.
Light golden colour, limpid and crystalline, often with greenish highlights. In the Yonne, Bourgogne blanc often develops aromas of gunflint or field mushroom. In the Côte-d’Or it is hazelnut with a hint of honey, butter, bracken, spices and sugared chestnuts. In the Saône-et-Loire notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and flint abound. On the palate it is aromatic, delicate but not over-light, full without being heavy, unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, well-rounded and quite deep, not overly structured yet persistent.
