Still wonderfully fresh, rich Puligny, a rich golden colour, all belying the age of the wine. Slightly nutty, but a good fruit and minerality and not oxidised. The wine had only been kept in a cupboard under the stairs, and I had feared this gift from when I left a job in 1995 would be over the hill, but an absolute pleasure to drink. I just wish it was more than the one bottle. In my opinion it still has enough going for it to last a couple more years.
1992 Etienne Sauzet Puligny Premier Crus (San Francisco): Aromas of lemon oil, white flowers, grilled bread and minerals. Richer and more intense than the La Garenne and with good acidity to keep it marvelously balanced. Elegant, clean and focused with good minerality that carries through to the long finish. Should be able to hold for a few more years if not longer. My favorite Sauzet of the night.
