Etienne Sauzet

This is an excellent vintage for Sauzet. Son-in-law Benoît Riffault records a decade working at Sauzet, since 2009, and he has helped further improve quality here. He suggests yields were approximately 35hl/ha for premiers crus, 45hl/ha for villages and 50hl/ha for Bourgognes. They began harvesting on 28th August. Alcohols range between 13% and 14%, and the wines spend 12 months in barrel and 4-6 months in tank before bottling.

Etienne Sauzet, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Champ-Canet 2017

Powerful, firm and muscular wine from a 1.2-hectare holding across four plots, with vines ranging from 28 to 93 years of age (the average is about 65 years). This well-sited vineyard, adjacent to Meursault Perrières, produces lots of millerands (small golden berries), resulting in deep-coloured wines. Drink from 2021 to 2026. 13.5%

Etienne Sauzet, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Combettes 2017

Superb, dense and opulent: a wine of controlled power. Combettes is beautifully situated mid slope and has well-drained soil, and is quite high in clay, which gives the wine its body and power. Drink from 2021 to 2026. 13.5%

Etienne Sauzet, Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Referts 2017

This vineyard is sited near the bottom of the slope and has more clay in the soil. This means that it produces quite a broad and grippy wine, but it also helps protect the vines from water stress, maintaining good levels of freshness this year. Drink from 2020 to 2025. 13.5%
