Overall impression is hindered from a cold but overall from what I can gather it is what I have come to expect from Sauzet with a rich, toasty nose, then a palate with cut, verve and minerality with a long finish. #pulignymontrachet #sauzet #chardonnayfromthebestplaceonearth

2008 Vintage - Puli in fine form, white flowers, beeswax, the wood could be more integrated, but then the acid wouldn't be as nice as today. Pretty killer.

Proving yet again why Chardonnay does not get much better than from Burgundy! A fine example of PM showing really well with great fruit purity, transparency, and minerality. Classic nose and palate but with a little more oomph from the 09 vintage. #pulignymontrachet #sauzet #burgundy

Fresh, mineral, pretty good length, restrained oak which 07s need. Really pretty bottle.
