    Outstanding 
    Producer note: Gérard Boudot described the 2016 vintage as "one that is already infamous for the combined double whammy of frost and mildew. One of the interesting, if painful, aspects of the frost is just how disparate the damage was. For example, the grands crus in particular were crushed as was my parcel of Chassagne yet the 1ers, with the exception of Folatières, were largely untouched so yields were pretty much normal there. On the other side of the ledger though is the sad reality that there will be no Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Chassagne or Bienvenues in 2016. I chose to begin picking on the 20th of September and thankfully the fruit came in both very clean and ripe without being too ripe so there were no issues with either fermentation. As to the wines, I would say that the quality is very good if not necessarily great. They do have very fine transparency and I see no reason why they shouldn't amply reward mid-term to mid-term plus cellaring." Boudot noted that the domaine had begun sealing the necks of the bottle with wax for the grands crus and he is sufficiently encouraged by the results that he intends to adopt this for all of the wines going forward. I would point out again that as of 2013 the domaine is using corks with a diameter of 25 mm (24 is normal) from cork bark that has a minimum of 12 years of age. Lastly, with the exception of the Bourgogne, the wines were bottled in January and February 2018. (Vineyard Brands, www.vineyardbrands.com, AL, USA; O.W.

    Tasting note: A smoky and expressive nose offers up notes of apple, pear, acacia and rose petal. Once again there is excellent intensity to the racy yet cool medium weight flavors that are at once richer and stony, all wrapped in a markedly saline-inflected finish that delivers even better persistence. Good stuff.

White Burgundy Sauzet 2015 Puligny 1er Cru Champ Canet

2 Case 6 75cl £595£570
  • Sweet spot Outstanding
    Once again firm reduction makes the nose a tough read. The rich, fresh and energetic medium-bodied flavors possess a beautifully elegant mouth feel that continues on to the refined, focused and impeccably well-balanced though notably firmer finish. Drink: 2025+

    (this fruit was picked fully ripe at the beginning of the harvest): Very pale bright yellow. Subtly complex aromas of yellow peach, apricot and spices. Boasts superb volume and a hint of sweetness to its yellow fruit and spice flavors, with harmonious acidity giving the wine a firm shape. Very easy to appreciate today owing to its silky sweetness but has the balance, volume and concentration for mid-term aging. Finishes tactile and very long, like chewing on ripe berries.

White Burgundy Sauzet 2012 Chevalier Montrachet

1 Case 3 75cl £1,200
  • Tasting note: This is also unusually expressive while exhibiting very subtle hints of exotic orange pekoe tea on the beautifully fresh nose of dried fruits that include apricot, white peach and acacia blossom. There is an opulent and caressing mouth feel to the very rich and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract before terminating in a delicious, mineral-driven and impressively long finish. This is rich to the point of succulence and while it will certainly age well this will be approachable much earlier than usual.

White Burgundy Sauzet 2012 Batard Montrachet

1 Case 3 75cl £850
  • Tasting note: Here the surprisingly expressive nose is even more complex with broad-ranging aromas of various floral and white fleshed fruit scents that also display top notes of spice, all of which is again framed in discreet oak hints. This is a big Bâtard where the broad-shouldered flavors brim with palate soaking dry extract that does a fine job of effectively buffering the very firm acid spine that keeps everything in balance on the opulently textured and hugely long finish. Moreover this is strikingly complex, indeed it rivals the Montrachet for being the most complex wine in the range.

White Burgundy Sauzet 2011 Puligny 1er Cru Champ Canet

1 Case 6 150cl £900
  • **Note: from a full 1 ha parcel of 40+ year old vines aged in approximately 1/3 new oak with a slightly longer élevage than the prior wines**
    This is really quite aromatically similar to the Truffières except that, somewhat surprisingly, the nose is even more elegant. There is a striking combination of excellent volume but also beautiful detail to the concentrated, refined and ultra-pure medium-bodied flavors that don't quite have the driving minerality but display markedly better complexity on the balanced and harmonious finish. This is a very stylish wine of class and grace that should repay up to a decade of cellaring.

    Green-tinged straw color. Fresh yellow peach and a suggestion of rocky austerity on the nose. Bright lemony acidity enlivens the tactile flavors of citrus, spices, flowers, minerals and white pepper. Finishes backward and quite dry, with a saline quality dusting the palate. I particularly like the wine's smoky mineral tension. This cuvee is the domain's largest premier cru, comprising three ages of vines, including the estate's oldest.

    Sweet hints of Chamomile, honey, almonds and yellow-fleshed fruit wrap around the palate as the 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Champ Canet shows off its class. Rich, layered and enveloping to the core, the Champ Canet is another wine that is going to need time to fully come together. I especially admire the wine's volume, texture and soft contours. Expressive floral notes appear over time, adding lift and perfume that balances some of the intensity of the fruit.
