Diverse additions from different corners of Burgundy

Domaine Etienne Sauzet

Puligny Montrachet, and in particular the chalk outcrop of Le Montrachet, is arguably the most revered source of Chardonnay on earth. While Sauzet Les Referts is not of that exalted standard, it’s an awfully compelling wine from one of the masters of Montrachet. Rich, powerful and a bit oaky in its youth, this is a fruit-driven example of Puligny that ages well yet is approachable at a fairly young age as well.

Sauzet Puligny Montrachet Les Referts $90
