2018 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet
A more floral-inflected nose reflects notes of pear and apple compote that is laced with soft spice and lemon zest hints. The medium weight flavors are not quite as concentrated but they're more finely textured while delivering very good length on the moderately firm finale. This too should add depth with 6 to 8 years of cellaring.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Aromas of waxy citrus rind, white flowers and almond paste introduce the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village, a medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured and supple wine that's lively and charming. A blend of seven different lieux-dits, this will drink well young.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village comes from the 12 parcels located around the appellation. It offers attractive dewy green apples, freshly sliced pear and hints of mirabelle on the nose, which needs a few swirls of the glass to awaken. The palate is well balanced with orange zest and citrus lemon and hints of lime, all matched with a fine bead of acidity, the 15% new oak neatly folded into the finish. Recommended.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Clear pale lemon, with some very appealing light fruit on the nose. Beautifully balanced on the palate, this is textbook Puligny, with its little bit of steely backbone supporting the most enticing fruit. Very good persistence.
