Etienne Sauzet 2004 Chardonnay (Montrachet)

  1. $500
A fine wine that offers power, generosity and also a chalky, mineral character. No wonder Montrachet is seen as the greatest grand cru—it has structure, concentration, delicious fruit and layers of complexity. It also needs to age. To drink this wine now would be more than a shame.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Chardonnay (Bâtard-Montrachet)

  1. $228
A wine of promise, but still in its infancy. This grand cru, structured and still waiting to open to its full opulence, is packed with concentrated flavors. It’s a powerhouse that needs at least five years to even begin to show its structure, ripe fruit and richness.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Chardonnay (Chevalier-Montrachet)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $253
Mineral and structured, this is a wine that is very linear and almost austere. There is elegance, fruit and wood along with a hint of ripe plums and peaches. But always that minerality, that steely character, which promise long aging.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Les Combettes Premier Cru Chardonnay (Puligny-Montrachet)

  1. $119
The most well known of Puligny’s premier cru vineyards, Les Combettes is at the very heart of the slope. This central position shows in this dense and concentrated wine that’s big, powerful and marked by fresh fruit-salad flavors of green figs, green apple and spice. The whole is borne up by a fine, solid structure of wood and tannins.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Champ Gain Premier Cru Chardonnay (Puligny-Montrachet)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $89
Full-bodied, big-hearted, ripe and joyful, this is a welcoming, enticing wine. Flavors of green plums, nutmeg and fresh citrus are part of the pleasure. But so are the open, generous, almost opulent flavors.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Les Folatières Premier Cru Chardonnay (Puligny-Montrachet)

  1. $103
Still tasting young, and not yet showing all its power, this is still an impressive wine. It is firm and structured, with citrus and mineral flavors dominating the concentrated fruit. The wood shows through via a warm spiciness. This will certainly age for 5 years or more.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Les Perrières Premier Cru Chardonnay (Puligny-Montrachet)

  1. $89
Elegance is the hallmark of this wine, which flows round the mouth with generous flavors but still leaves a fresh, crisp aftertaste. Green apples, spice and wood all balance well.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)

Etienne Sauzet 2004 Chardonnay (Puligny-Montrachet)

  1. $57
Rich, buttery and forward, but with a fine streak of minerality to give structure and interest. The wood gives a spicy character to the wine, but it doesn’t dominate the rich burst of fruit.  — R.V.  (12/1/2006)
