2018 Domaine Etienne Sauzet Puligny Montrachet La Garenne Premier Cru
There is just enough reduction present to blur the nuances of what appears to be ripe fruit. Otherwise, there is evident minerality to the sleek and stony medium-bodied flavors that possess a bit more refinement as well as notably better overall depth and length.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A cuvée produced with purchased grapes from a parcel farmed and harvested by the Sauzet team, the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Garenne wafts from the glass with scents of pear and green apple complemented by nuances of hazelnut and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, it's satiny and enveloping, with a pretty core of fruit, lively acids and chalky back-end grip.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)
The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne 1er Cru comes from just under a single hectare of vines next to Blagny. It has quite a stern, austere bouquet at the moment, a little overshadowed by the Puligny Village. The palate is well balanced with light citrus lemon, white peach and lime notes on the entry, moderate weight and commendable precision on the finish. I would afford this two or three years for the aromatics to find their groove.
Neal Martin - Vinous
A vineyard that you need to wait for, before picking. Old vines here. Full, clear pale yellow. Good fresh detailed nose, then puts on some white fruit weight on the palate, with decent flesh at the back, and good length.
