(35+ year old vines planted in much deeper soil interspersed with lots of gravel and aged in 33% new wood). A slightly riper nose that is pure elegant and expressive displays orchard fruit especially white peach and pear trimmed in freshly cut lemon hints that continue onto the bigger and richer flavors that offer a natural sweetness on the sappy complex and beautifully balanced finish. Good juice and very Puligny.

The Sauzet 2007 Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts - from 55 year old vines in a clay-rich parcel right up against Meursault Charmes - is pungently and sweetly scented with heliotrope lily and lemon zest; palpable extract rich in its combination of chewy peach skin lemon zest salt and chalk with bitter hints of peach kernel and toasted nuts seemingly reflecting proximity to Meursault; and invigoratingly tactilely long. Any tendency this bright tensile wine would have towards austerity is ameliorated by its glycerin-rich texture which also helps with a hint of finishing roughness. -David Schildknecht

Clean lines mark this slim taut linear white. Lime apple hazelnut and mineral aromas and flavors get lift from the vivid structure. It all plays out on the crisp limestone-inflected finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. 88... Clean lines mark this slim taut linear white. Lime apple hazelnut and mineral aromas and flavors get lift from the vivid structure.

Supple fresh and perfumed in the mouth with brisk acidity giving shape to the white peach flavors. Nicely dense and backward wine with a solid spinal column. The pH here is a fairly low 3.17 notes Boudot most of whose 2007s are in the healthy 3.2 range.
