Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet les Referts 2014


SKU 04630


The white wines of Puligny-Montrachet are probably the most famous and most widely acclaimed in the world. The domaine of Etienne Sauzet is made up of 26 acres, much of it in the heart of the premier crus vineyards of this famed village. Gérard Boudot, owner and winemaker of Domaine Sauzet, is seeking "maximum finesse and an individual expression of the climate." M. Boudot, who married the granddaughter of the late Etienne Sauzet, runs the domaine and has modernized and improved the vinification, making the wines of this domaine among the most sought-after white wines of Burgundy. The estate has been bottling 100% of its production since the early 1950' and, since 1975, the domaine has been selling the entirety of its production in bottle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru les Referts has a similar bouquet to the 2014 Hameau de Blagny, but with slightly more greener fruit, kiwi and Granny Smith apples. The palate is vibrant on the entry. There is good weight here, harmonious and focused, gaining weight on the citrus-driven finish with hints of nectarine and pear on the aftertaste. This fans out nicely after a modest beginning and I suspect it will reside at the top of my estimate once in bottle.
