The wines of Domaine Etienne Sauzet are among the most sought after white wines of Burgundy and the tradition to the land as well as new innovation has made it so.
A ripe, candied nose, a little tropical with butterscotch candy and salt water taffy. On the palate, creamy and silky in texture with a little rustic overtone The finish is nutty and buttery.
Burghound (BH): 90
"There is a background hint of sulfur that detracts only mildly from the otherwise notably ripe aromas of dried apricot, peach and mango. There is excellent volume to the rich, delicious and extract-rich flavors that possess a seductive texture, all wrapped in a complex, balanced and solidly long finish."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 89-92
"Pale green-yellow. Sexy, perfumed aromas of pear and white flowers; this was one of the last 2011s to finish its malolactic fermentation and had more CO2 at the time of my tasting. Rich and sweet but with a light touch to the floral and hazelnut flavors. Finishes with nice persistence."
