Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Canet unfurls in the glass with a superb bouquet of citrus oil, crisp green apple, wheat toast, freshly baked bread and mandarin, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and complete palate that's deep and layered, underpinned by incisive acids and concluding with a long, mineral finish. It's hard to choose between this and the more muscular, introverted Combottes, but both are worth a special effort to seek out.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 94 RP
The Boudot family has produced an absolutely stellar example of Champ Canet as well in 2017. The wine delivers a fine aromatic constellation of white peach, apple, chalky minerality, orange zest, spring flowers and a nice touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied, long and very racy in profile, with a lovely core, excellent cut and grip and a very long, properly youthful and zesty finish.

John Gilman | 93 JG
(from a full 1.1 ha parcel of 40+ year old vines in Champ Canet proper though some of them were planted in 1938 at the same time as the Bienvenues). Ripe but attractively fresh aromas are comprised by notes of mostly white orchard fruit, and in particular essence of pear, along with plenty of floral elements that are trimmed in hints of wood, matchstick and mandarin orange peel. There is excellent volume to the powerful, intense and concentrated middle weight plus flavors that display a refreshing salinity on the driving, complex and beautifully long finale. Once again there is solid structure present so this will require at least some patience. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*

Burghound | 91-94 BH
(this is aging in 30% new oak, which is pretty much the maximum for premier crus at this address): Pale yellow. Aromas of peach, white pepper and fresh almond; spicier than most of the foregoing samples. Dense and intensely flavored, conveying a lightly saline quality to its white peach, soft citrus and spice flavors. A nicely plush, fine-grained midweight with excellent class and length. Finishes quite firm, with a strong citrus spine.

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!
