The history of this domaine dates to the beginning of the 20th century, when Etienne Sauzet inherited and bought several plots of vines in the village of Puligny-Montrachet. The vines passed through the family to Jeanine Boillot, Sauzet’s granddaughter. She and her husband, Gérard Boudot, managed the domaine and made many modernizations including improved vinification techniques and biodynamic farming. Today the domaine has passed to their daughter Emilie and her husband, Benoît Riffault, who continue to produce white wines that are among the most sought-after in all of Burgundy. After four generations and despite Sauzet’s death in 1975, “Sauzet” are still six letters which ring as an homage to Chardonnay.

Restrained and cool aromas reflect notes of matchstick, citrus and a wide range of white-fleshed fruit. The succulent and very round flavors possess excellent mid-palate density while delivering excellent length on the sappy and refreshing finish. This mildly austere effort is sufficiently rich to allow for early accessibility yet the underlying structure is clearly present to allow for up to a decade of improvement. This is quality juice.
