Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet 2022

Etienne Sauzet is arguably one of Puligny's finest domaines and Benoît Riffault's immaculate wines are all about minerality, precision and exceptional length. Sourced from seven parcels around Puligny Montrachet, this is an incredibly pure and elegant Puligny. Practising both organic and biodynamic viticulture, all the grapes were hand harvested and subject to careful sorting both in the vineyard and the winery. Once sorted, they were gently whole bunch pressed in a pneumatic press for two hours to keep as much of the aromatics and rich fruit flavours as possible. Temperature controlled fermentation took place in older barrels under constant supervision. The wine was then aged in oak barrels, 15% of which were new and the remainder 2-3 years old, for a 12 to 15-month period. A further 3 months of ageing occurred in stainless-steel tanks before the wine was racked off the fine lees and bottled. This Puligny-Montrachet has incredible purity and precision. The nose displays perfumed aromas of candied fruit, lifted by fresh floral notes. Richly textured with concentrated fruit flavours, the palate is extremely well balanced by crisp acidity and mineral notes on the finish.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
