2016 Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Garenne"

SKU #1367043 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Whiffs of mineral reduction and matchstick are present on the cool and airy aromas of pear and acacia blossom. The racy, intense and overtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a compact and linear finish. This is clearly quite backward and is going to need most of a decade to arrive at its peak. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2018)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The Puligny La Garenne is very true to type in 2016, with a pure bouquet of apple and flowers, followed on the palate by an ample, moderately glossy, cool wine with a bright core of fruit and a clean, subtly chalky finish. Drinking Window 2018-2025. (WK) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

88-90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (from a normal crop of 45 hectoliters per hectare): Medium bright yellow. Inviting floral lift to the peach and apple flavors. Then distinctly more mineral-driven in the mouth, all rocks and calcaire today, with its fruit in the deep background. Finishes dry and classic, with lingering salinity. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

K&L Notes

94 points from Tim Atkin, M.W.: "La Garenne comes from the higher part of Puligny, close to the hamlet of Blagny, and tends to produce one of the freshest and most vivacious wines in the Sauzet range. It’s a very chiselled style, showing attractive oak, real zip and precision and considerable palate length. 2020-26." (01/2018) 91 points from Jasper Morris, M.W.: 'Faint yellow colour. There is virtually no bouquet at this stage but more interest on the palate in its typical dry stony style. There is a little bit more flesh here than in some years and a complex dry finish." (01/2018)
