Other Reviews....
This is aromatically similar to the La Garenne but with even more citrus influence. The palate impression of the medium-bodied flavors is not quite as tension-filled but there is a bit more mid-palate fat, all wrapped in a bone dry and slightly more complex finale. This too needs to add a bit of depth but given that there is sufficient structure, it should reward mid-term cellaring.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp white peach, grapefruit pith, white flowers and subtle hints of orange blossom, the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny is medium to full-bodied, tensile and incisive, with good concentration at the core, racy acids and a long finish with good grip. This is one of the more precise and less fleshy 2017s from Sauzet this year, showing its higher-altitude origins, and that marks it out as a particular success.

Pale yellow. Citrus and fresh apricot aromas, along with a floral element that I did not find in the smoky, reduced Garenne, which was going through a closed phase and was impossible to assess with confidence. A step up in texture and sweetness as well, showing a felicitous sugar/acid balance, noteworthy concentration and a fine-grained texture. This broad, fruity wine boasts well-integrated acidity.
