A restrained but highly complex nose features notes of ripe, pure and elegant honeysuckle, pear, apple and soft spice aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent concentration to the equally refined and relatively powerful medium weight flavors that possess a highly seductive mouth feel before culminating in a saline and gorgeously persistent finish. This is presently quite tightly coiled and will require a few years of bottle age to develop and relax but it is very promising as this appears to have excellent upside development potential.

The Sauzet domaine covers roughly 10 hectares in Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet and produces some of the finest white Burgundies available. Winemaker Gerard Boudot has a magic touch and the wines, from the village Puligny to the grand crus, are exceptional across the board.
