  • Étienne Sauzet's Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Les Combettes comes from a one-hectare holding of old vines (50 years). Ample, generous and sophisticated, it is also very mineral and is among the domaine's best wines. It has the same ageing potential as its grand cru counterparts; that is, 5 to 10 years.

    Created in 1903, the Domaine Etienne Sauzet has been producing Montrachet since the 1993 vintage. Gérard Boudot, (married to Etienne Sauzet’s grand-daughter) has managed it since 1974 and improved the domaine from the mid-1980s. Limited yields, harvesting as late as possible and classic vinification marked by débourbage (which allows very fine sur lie aging) contribute to creating wines of a very consistent and an exemplary finesse, unanimously hailed by French and foreign wine lovers. Since 1989, following a division of the domaine, Gérard Boudot, has also been trading and buying grape must to complete his production, without affecting quality. The domaine extends over 9 hectares.
