Etienne Sauzet Hauts Côtes de Beaune Blanc 'Jardin du Calvaire'

Etienne Sauzet's 'Jardin du Calvaire' is a biodynamically cultivated vineyard planted at an altitude of 450 metres, at the end of a steep path called ‘la route du Calvaire’ (the Calvary route, an indication of its steepness) which is planted with vines owned by Benoît and Emilie. The grapes from the vineyard are all hand harvested and manually sorted for pressing. Fermentation, using only indigenous yeasts, takes place in stainless-steel tanks for approximately three weeks. The wine was then aged for 12 to 15 months in French oak barrels (15% new), before spending a further three months in stainless steel vats to settle before bottling. In keeping with Etienne's signature winemaking style, the Hautes Côtes de Beaune Blanc 'Jardin du Calvaire' has a very precise, fresh nose with notes of citrus, white flowers and delicate mineral undertones. On the palate, there are notes of white pepper, vanilla and herbs. It has a lively acidity with a long saline finish.
