 Tasted by harrylime on 5/29/2015 & rated 94 points: Bright lively amber gold. Flinty mineral nose with butter light florals and some apricot. Very fine and precise balanced right on the edge. Incredible finish. (96 views)

Nose: Aromas of honey, apple, lemon zest, cream, cold butter, floral notes and flint stones.
Palate: Mineral driven style with a nice depth and good acidity. Oak is notable, round and silky on the palate. Getting better and better with some temperature & air. (720 views)
 Tasted by tooch on 1/12/2013 & rated 90 points: Saturday with David White (Domaine Wine Storage & Sun Wah - Chicago, IL): Not oxidized! Amazing. Anyways, this was really nice with bright, flinty, lemon. and oceanic tones. Great edge to it and impressive complexity. (1679 views)
 Tasted by KeithAkers on 1/12/2013 & rated 91 points: David White comes to town (Domaine Wine Storage and Sun-Wah BBQ, Chicago IL): Nose: This actually has a nice maturity to it with tones of pain grille, lemon curds, creams, pears, white fruits, and a bit of sea breeze to retain some freshness.

Taste: Full bodied with nice medium acidity and premier cru level depth. There are well balanced tones of pain grille, sea breeze, lemon curds, and some creams with a touch of white fruits.

Overall: Thank god this wasn't premox'd. With Sauzet that's always a worry. Thankfully this was also a very nice and mature bottle that was drinking beautifully. (1256 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 3/20/2012 & rated 82 points: Les Grands Jours - lunches and dinners between tastings; 3/18/2012-3/22/2012 (Burgundy): Very advanced aromas and flavors, and while not oxidized, this is well on its way. Far more advanced than a top 2000 from a top producer should come across today. Others enjoyed this a little bit more than I did tonight. (1503 views)
 Tasted by Greg Munyard on 6/13/2011 & rated 86 points: An enjoyable, refined wine of some class, in excellent condition and free of faults but nevertheless underwhelming. Colour was bright and correct. Nose had good (but not great) complexity and lifted aromatics, after being opened for about an hour, but did not have us salivating at the thought of another glass.

Palate was enjoyable but that's it. I expected way more complexity and character. A nice refined, stylish wine but not a great white burgundy. I would have been disappointed even if it were a village Puligny. Consumed at lunch with my wife in a nice restaurant in Beaune, we left almost 1/3 of the bottle behind. My wife is a good 2nd opinion as she drinks a lot of good white burgundy and doesn't really care about the cost. She was very surprised when I told her. (1266 views)
 Tasted by cct on 4/26/2010 & rated 91 points: light golden color with lemon curd, seashells, well integrated wood and a stoniness. Really fine midpalate, with complexity and depth that belies its lightness on the palate. Very clean ad very long. Thank God it wasn't premoxed. I love Sauzet when it isn't premoxed.

Lovely 91 pts. (825 views)
 Tasted by rnellans on 4/6/2010 & rated 91 points: Deep yellow. No premox. Mineral..elegant style. Very nice acidity. (354 views)

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
