    Cuvée presentation

    Along with Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet and Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet is one of the five great white wines of the Côte de Beaune, divided between the villages of Puligny and Chassagne. Each of this quintet is a pretender to the title of "World's Best Dry White Wine". However, these wines are capable of reaching peaks of richness and aromatic complexity as well as a virtually peerless persistence. Étienne Sauzet's offering is produced from the oldest vines (65 years). Sauzet owns no vines on what is the largest white terroir in the world, buying in grape must instead. Raised in barrels on its lees for up to 12 months, it is vinified with great care. Its low yields make it a very concentrated wine. It has much in common with Bâtard-Montrachet; less powerful, but perhaps with more finesse. This great wine can be aged for 5 to 10 years.

    Information about domain Etienne Sauzet

    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.
