Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet La Garenne 2014
BurghoundA cool and pure nose displays notes of mineral reduction, green fruit and various citrus elements. There is terrific intensity to the much more mineral-inflected and slightly bigger medium weight flavors that possess very fine depth on the beautifully well-delineated finish that possesses Chablis-like iodine nuances. 90-92
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru la Garenne was missing a bit of substance on the nose when I tasted it at the domaine, though with modest encouragement it opens up to deliver hints of citrus fruit. This just did not quite express the terroir as other of Sauzet's premier crus. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, the oak just rounding this out rather, hints of toffee apple and peach surfacing towards the poised finish. It actually finished better than it begins, so let's see what it can do once in bottle.
