Average critic rating : 92.0 points



Aromatically demure, the 2002 Chevalier-Montrachet presents a silky, velvety personality of quinine, gravel, and pears. It is lively, concentrated, and reveals an admirably long, highly detailed finish. Projected maturity: 2006-2013. ||“I have only good things to say about 2002. It is the fourth in a series of good vintages, starting with the 1999s. There was no rot, great maturity, and excellent balance to add backbone,” said Gerard Boudot, Sauzet’s winemaker. He went on to add, “2002 is a very good vintage. Some people compare it to 1996, but those were much more austere wines. Some people speak of 1992, but it is livelier. Maybe it reminds me of 1985.” Wine Advocate.February, 2004

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.
