Domaine Etienne Sauzet - Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Champ Gain 2017
The Champ-Gain vineyard is located in Puligny-Montrachet at the upper limits in altitude for premier crus (approx 325-350m). At its northern border it touches the prized "Truffière" portion of Folatières and it is just under the the premier cru "La Garenne." Sauze's portion of this premier cru is a small .29ha postage stamp with vines planted on very poor and rocky soils. Resulting wines like this are blessed with great combination of fresh minerality and opulence. Now with the addition of a few years in the bottle, it is a formidable wine in your glass but you can continue to hang on to it.
