The 2010 Montrachet is sweet, inviting and delicate. Even though Sauzet’s Montrachet is from the Chassagne side, it has an element of finesse that is reminiscent of Puligny. Lemon, white flowers and crushed rocks are woven together in a fabric of unusual class and elegance. Here, too, there is an element of reduction, but this is the wine where that note is least bothersome. Saline notes linger on the precise, nuanced finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. ||I have to admit I was a bit perplexed by these 2010s from Sauzet. A number of wines were massively reduced and/or heavily sulfured to a degree I did not encounter at any other property I visited. The best selections in the lineup are quite strong, which suggests some of those elements may dissipate over time as the wines integrate, but at the same time, I can only report what is in the glass, and the reality is that some of the wines in this lineup are very awkward at this stage. I suggest readers taste the Sauzet 2010s before making any major commitments. The 2010 harvest started on September 17th. Yields were closer to normal in the village wines, but down by as much as 35% in the premier and grand crus. The wines spent 12 months in oak, 25-35% new for the premier crus, and 35% new for the grand crus, followed by six months in tank. eRobertParker.com.August, 2012
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.
