Puligny-Montrachet 2015, Etienne Sauzet

In a lot of people's minds the Sauzet Domaine is one of the big three Puligny producers along with Leflaive and Chartron by dint of their expansive vineyard holdings in premiers and grands crus. Tasted at the annual Justerini & Brooks Burgundy tasting this Puligny is fresh, crunchy and tightly wound. Minerality squared on the palate. Shows mastery of the ripe vintage to produce a classic Puligny style. Will require more ageing than most of the approachable 2015s. Very good but at this stage not exciting. Scores 23-25/30 for a Puligny.
