Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet La Garenne 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Puligny-Montrachet|
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.
