Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru - les Combettes, 2009, Domaine Etienne Sauzet
Note: also from a full 1 ha parcel of 50+ year old vines that saw 40% new wood
Very mild wood influence allows the notably ripe aromas of white peach, pear liqueur and acacia blossom aromas to shine without any material hindrance.
The rich, powerful and impressively concentrated large-scaled flavors possess an opulent yet fine mouth feel along with a palate staining, explosive and hugely long finish of almost painful intensity.
As it often does at this address, the '09 Sauzet Combettes delivers grand cru level quality.
