The 2014 Puligny-Montrachet Villages, which comes from the same 12 parcels from north to south of the appellation as in previous years, has a lively bouquet that has more personality than the Chassagne Enceignières - light oyster shell scents coming through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with vibrant acidity, crisp and taut with a lively, green apple and fresh nectarine finish. Nice length here and nicely composed, this would be my preference over the Chassagne Villages this year.

Product Description:

Domaine Etienne Sauzet, located in the village of Puligny-Montrachet is arguably one of Puligny’s finest domaines. The domaine was established in the 1920s and at its height, had 12 hectares of vines. Etienne’s daughter inherited the vineyards and left them to her three children. As a result the vineyard holdings total less than nine hectares. Today, the next generation has taken over with Emilie, Jeanine’s daughter, running the domaine with her winemaker husband Benoît Riffault. Etienne Sauzet purchases grapes from family and trusted growers. They have been practicing biodynamic viticulture for the last seven years. The portion of new oak in the cellar has also been reduced in recent years to allow the elegance of the fruit to shine through.
