A notably elegant nose of ripe and pure white and yellow orchard fruit, lemon zest, pain grillé and a hint of spice marries into rich, generous and relatively full-bodied flavors that possess ample dry extract and excellent mid-palate concentration. There is a firm but ripe acid spine that shapes and supports the palate staining and perfumed finish. While not destined to be one of the genuinely great examples of Sauzet Combettes, this is still a stunner of a 1er. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2019+

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Combettes 2011 from Sauzet has a very composed bouquet with the minerality shining through, exuding great tension and allowing the aromatics that speak of a place. The palate is well balanced with a crisp line of acidity. This is well structured with judiciously integrated oak, touches of spicy citrus fruit and great tension toward the finish that fans out beautifully. Excellent. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014

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.
