2010 Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet
- Côte de Beaune
Community Tasting Notes 39
Callum's Corkers Likes this wine: (88 points)
December 26, 2016 - Bought approx £50.00, UK.
Cork. Mod chilled. Opened Christmas lunch.
Tighter, drier, more closed than I'd expected of a 6 yr old bottle from the 2010 vintage. Too young?
Solid golden colour. Lots of oak on the nose, along with apples - stewed, not raw/fresh - a bit of butter, some limestone minerals, only moderately intense. No peaches and cream, no lush rich fruit seduction.
Tastes of a classy structured, taut, dry white, a very Foodie style. Not a rich 'can't put down all-nighter.' Opened too young? Some limes, somewhat restrained and short, but a powerful essence. No richness of ripe fruit (for a 2010?), nice earthy minerals. Terroir. Only wish I had another bottle to open in 5 yrs.
Value for Money? No, not really. But I'd need to have the same vintage open at 10 yrs, say, to really establish VFM.

Very pleasant nose, slight oxidisation.
Slight oxidisation in the mouth, but pleasant, fruity, minerality in the mid palate, drink soon.1 person found this helpful Comment

April 2, 2016 - Superbe puligny. Il faut lui donner un peu de temps pour s'exprimer mais une fois ouvert, c'est puissant et au nez et en bouche. Grande longueur en bouche. Une belle acidité bien balance.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 22, 2016 - Another 375ml bottle, perhaps the best one yet. Fresh, vibrant, nicely floral. Great way to start the weekend.2 people found this helpful Comment

December 29, 2015 - From 375 ml bottle. An odd bottle. Shrill and mouth-puckeringly tart. Unlike any other bottle of this same wine from the same case I've had before.1 person found this helpful Comments (2)
