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.
About the cuvée
Domaine Etienne Sauzet's Puligny-Montrachet "Village" is fermented and aged in oak barrels (20% new wood). This refined, harmonious wine comes from a few well-distributed vineyards across the local commune (Le Trézin, Les Meix, Charmes and Les Corvées), and is ready for drinking after 2 or 3 years.
