Wine Critic Reviews:

La Garenne is one of Puligny's smaller and less well known premiers crus, located on the slope up to Blagny. It makes wines that generally have plenty of bite and acidity, and this example is a case in point, showing a hint of stony reduction, some vanilla spice and a core of chalky minerality.

The peach and apple flavors are wrapped in butter and baking spice notes in this rich, almost creamy white. Harmonious and charming enough to be enjoyable now, yet there is good cut underneath and fine length. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made, 95 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 93 WS
Unfurling in the glass with aromas of wheat toast, crisp green orchard fruit, white peach and subtle hints of nutmeg, as well as a touch of youthful struck match, Sauzet's 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne is medium to full-bodied, satiny but incisive, with a lively but envelopingly textural profile, excellent concentration and tension at the core, and a long, delicately chalky finish. This saw a very judicious 25% new wood and is shaping up to be one of the finest renditions of this cuvée that I've tasted.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 92 RP
(Puligny-Montrachet “Clos de la Garenne”- Domaine Etienne Sauzet) The 2017 Sauzet Clos de la Garenne, like all of the premier crus in the cellar here this year, is impressively reserved in personality and racy in structural profile and will age beautifully. The youthfully complex nose delivers scents of apple, yellow fruit, chalky soil tones, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely solid at the core, with racy acids, excellent focus and backend mineral drive and a long, promising and vibrant finish. A lovely bottle- just add some time in the cellar to blossom properly! (Drink between 2022-2055)

John Gilman | 91 JG
This wine’s fruit is buttercup-yellow, with richness that brings to mind lemon custard and lavender. There’s enough acidity to clean up that richness, so the wine feels potent and satisfying as it lasts.

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!
