2019 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1517975 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark From a parcel next to Bienvenues on the Puligny side. The fruit is whole cluster pressed before being run into cask along with most of its lees for fermentation and ageing of up to 18 months. The result is spectacular; it's a wine of great elegance, that manages ripe fruit and well-integrated spice from the ageing, yet retains one of the most incisive balances in all of Bâtard, with a perfect equilibrium between buttery richness and a lemony fresh quality. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru comprises three barrels this year, one new. It has a wonderful bouquet, extremely well defined with scents of crushed stone permeating the green apple and citrus aromas. This gains complexity with just a couple of swirls. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, more saline than the Bienvenue with a sappy and persistent finish. Impressive classicism here considering the warmth of the summer. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Blockier and even more textural than this year's Bienvenues, the 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with notes of oranges, peaches, ripe pears, white flowers, wheat toast and smoke. Full-bodied, rich and powerful, it's thick and muscular, with considerable concentration, lively acids despite its size, and a long, resonant finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

93-97pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Pale lemon colour, very stylish. The nose suggests class, but hides the detail. Spicy notes. Need to wait for this to emerge. Then the palate shows more exotic fruit, yellow and peachy, but there is a good acid structure behind. Intense and powerful, with impressive dry extract, suggesting a very long future for this wine Tasted: September 2020."
