2019 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Combettes" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1517982 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Superb - this is among the most complex and round, if not necessarily the most easy to approach in its youth. A substantial wine that is somewhat closed initially, with time it opens to show its richness and weight, along with a full array of aromas from ripe pears to fresh flowers, beeswax and spice. The texture is broad, but well balanced by the crisp acidity. A lovely, masterful wine. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru has a tightly wound bouquet, less expressive than the other cuvées, but a few swirls reveal intense mineral-driven malic fruit. Like the aromatics, the palate is beautifully defined and reminds me of Domaine Leflaive in style. The spiciness hits the back palate, hints of lemongrass linger in the mouth after this Les Combettes has departed. Classy but compact at the moment, so do not begrudge cellaring this for 3-5 years.

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Notes of mandarin oil, pear, peach and fresh bread preface the 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes, a medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping wine that is rich and fleshy, retaining good precision despite its round, ripe style. This was quite demonstrative when I tasted it—unusual for this cuvée—but I look forward to revisiting it after another winter on the lees. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

92-94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Full yellow with just the faintest green tint. A broad sunny bouquet, and while there is a huge volume of fruit, one senses the power and the alcohol. Not the highest by any means (Chassagne @14.9%) and there is tension at the back. The fruit profile is more white than yellow as well. A massive wine, which I think will come together. Tasted: September 2020."
