2016 Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru La Garenne, Domaine Etienne Sauzet (Bottle)

France Burgundy Beaune

The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne was not affected by frost and consequently enjoyed similar yields as 2015, among the highest of Sauzet’s 2016s. The nose is elegant and stylish with apple blossom, brioche and hazelnut scents that lean a little toward Meursault. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity, sappy in the mouth with a crisp if just slightly abrupt, slate-like finish. Good potential and I suspect it will put on weight in bottle.

Vinous

The 2016 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne 1er Cru offers light grass clipping and apple peeling aromas, nicely defined if just missing a little intensity. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, quite bright and focused with a clean, crisp if slightly abrupt finish. Tasted at the Domaine Direct Tasting in London.
