Wine Critic Reviews:

Benoît Riffault's 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Village is already open and expressive on the nose, wafting from the glass with aromas of ripe lemons, Anjou pear, nutmeg, dried white flowers and warm bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a satiny attack, excellent amplitude and concentration at the core, ripe acids and a long, expansive finish. This is quite a powerful example of the vintage, but don't let its youthful precocity deceive, as it has the structure and substance to evolve gracefully in the cellar.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91 RP
Focused, displaying well-defined flavors of lime, peach, hazelnut and pastry. Juicy and open, showing a hint of salinity on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,750 cases made, 280 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 91 WS
A more restrained and more floral nose reflects notes of white peach, pear and acacia blossom. There is better detail and excellent punch to the attractively delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess better mid-palate density, all wrapped in an agreeably dry, focused and well-balanced finish. Lovely.

(Puligny-Montrachet- Domaine Etienne Sauzet) The 2017 Puligny AC from the Boudot family is also an fine bottle of village wine, with a lovely girdle of acidity that will ask for a few years in the cellar to blossom properly. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of white peach, apple, spring flowers, chalky soil tones, lemon peel and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, long and quite impressively racy in personality, with a fine core, very good focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and zesty finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2020-2045)

John Gilman | 90 JG
Good aromatic lift to the aromas of fresh apricot and butter. A step up in density and balance from the village Chassagne-Montrachet but weightless and stylish. Stone fruit flavors are lifted by a subtle floral topnote. Finishes shapely, dry and persistent, with very good cut. Should make a classic, harmonious village wine.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer E.Sauzet: The Etienne Sauzet wines' flavors are simply otherworldly, with a level of freshness that no other drink can boast, even under perfect conditions. Minerality and the rich, buttery texture of the wine gives it a unique identity and will get you hooked after just one tasting. Resisting a second or third glass takes the patience of a monk, although we see no reason as to why you wouldn't indulge in just a little bit more each time. The fruit is deep and pristine, creating an aroma that carries images of heavenly gardens and lush fairytale forests. If you appreciate a serving of fine Chardonnay, you can't go wrong with a bottle or two of delicious, juicy Sauzet. Let us guide you through this enchanting world, and open a window towards a potential new love!
